Laura Mellem – Public Engagement Manager, New Orleans Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness

Emergence doesn’t just get you thinking about a change initiative to solve a problem, it provides the basic skills of organizational change, an understanding of organizational structures, tools for pitching projects to leadership, managing those projects, and maybe most importantly, skills for dealing with the unknown challenges with implementation.

Without a doubt, the welcoming environment and openness of faculty and participants is something very unique to Emergence…although I may have been concerned with my limited experience in the field before attending, the overall experience was extremely collaborative and conducive with learning.”
