Time: 7:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. (Pacific Time)

The opioid overdose crisis in BC represents a serious adaptive challenge that is having far reaching impacts on people with lived experience, families, communities, policy makers, organizations, clinicians, health authorities, and emergency services.

What can we learn about leadership in the context of this adaptive challenge?

What role does leadership play when solutions are not clear and no one individual or stakeholder has the answer?

What elements of leadership emerge in an environment of urgency where learning, resourcefulness, innovation, collaboration and adaption are required?

Please join us for an important conversation where leaders with clinical, organizational and lived experience share their perspectives and insights into to this public health emergency and how it impacts their and others leadership.
