    Violence takes a toll on the business and economic climate. The business sector has a stake in the solution to violence and an important role to play in achieving peace. Businesses can play a critical part in making multisector efforts to prevent violence succeed. For example, targeted employment and employee training, mentorship, apprenticeship, and economic development, in conjunction with coordinated efforts in the public and service sectors, can make a difference in violence rates while improving the business climate and local economies.

    Featuring Jenna Abbott, Executive Director of the Mack Road Partnership, and Freddy Barton, Executive Director of Safe & Sound Hillsborough, this webinar will provide an overview of the business sector’s role in violence prevention efforts. It will describe strategies for engaging this sector, provides examples of successful business sector engagement, and show how PI’s Collaboration Multiplier Tool can be used to support business and other sectors in coming together to achieve a shared vision.

    This symposium will explore the current state of Iowa’s drinking water and the future challenges confronting water providers in the state to reliably deliver safe drinking water to Iowans.  Co-organized by the University of Iowa Public Policy Center and the Center for Health Effects of Environmental Contamination (CHEEC), this all day event will include panels of water experts from academia, industry, and the public sector including the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR).  In light of recent, high profile incidents of public health crises arising from drinking water contamination around the United States, a special focus will be placed on whether drinking water supplies in Iowa are susceptible to similar vulnerabilities experienced elsewhere.  This includes a presentation by members of the Flint Water Study, who will share first-hand experiences and lessons learned from the public health crisis in Flint, Michigan. Beyond Flint, panel topics will address other potential threats to the sustainability of Iowa’s drinking water supplies.
