Evolving threats and future uncertainties create strategic challenges for today's and tomorrow's emergency management leaders. This symposium will employ a series of "futures scenarios" to elicit broader, long-term strategic thinking and allow participants to assess how potential future changes in our world may affect emergency management. Participants will explore global trends and their impact on the emergency management operating environment, in Oklahoma and beyond. Attendees will advance their critical thinking and strategic leadership skills through facilitated dialogues, small group activities, and foresight discussions designed to shape strategy, planning and decision making processes.
