DRI International’s partner in the United Kingdom, BANG (Business and National Government) has undergone a reorganization, and is now known as the Resilience Association!
“I am very excited to be able to share this news from BANG, now the Resilience Association,” said Kelsey Rose, DRI Director of Global Operations. “Having had the privilege of attending a few of their events, I look forward to seeing their community continue to strengthen and grow.”
The Resilience Association connects people, content and ideas from across the resilience spectrum to share best practices, networking, and knowledge for organizational resilience across the community. It is open to full-time resilience professionals, those considering a career in the field, and anyone else for whom resilience is part of their responsibilities.

The Resilient Woman
Wednesday, July 31, 2019
For Rina Singh it was all going well until suddenly she found herself in her mid-20’s, with no job or money. In this ever-competitive world finding work was tough so she started her blog (RISKercize, now The RESILIENCE POD), moved to London and then successfully implemented BCM/Risk framework across the non-profit and healthcare sectors resulting in being shortlisted as continuity & resilience newcomer and professional of the year. This came with its challenges. Fast forward a few years to present day, now in her early 30s, she is part of a dynamic award-winning team within the infrastructure/ rail sector – and this is only just the beginning.
For many women resilience is a strength considered essential. Both men and women need resilience, but women need to overcome traditional unconscious bias and other obstacles placed in their way in order to advance in the business world. Are you aware of the amount of personal resilience you possess? How can you channel your own resilience to help your organization become resilient?
Join our speaker for this month’s Women In Resilience Session, Rina Singh, MBCI, Resilience Manager at Network Rail, to hear how in just six years she stepped out of her comfort zone and shares her inspirational journey on what it takes to be that resilient woman in business.
Please note; to cover refreshments and food for this evening event, attendance is chargeable at £15, payable on entry.
