Join us for a timely discussion that will help us to understand the science behind resilience and how it can be used to strengthen social networks, building hope for a more positive future.

The Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance, and often lack, of resilience in our communities. But what if we could harness the science of resilience to help build stronger communities?

For this event, we will be in conversation with Dr. Mollie Marti, a resilience researcher, author and developer of the THRIVE Resilience Modelâ„¢. Mollie is the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Worldmaker International, an NGO that provides research-based frameworks to help communities, organizations and leaders, prepare for, adapt to and grow through adversity. Her research areas include psychosocial aspects of childhood adversity and resilience, crisis preparedness and recovery, military community transitions and workplace wellbeing.

Mollie will share an overview of the THRIVE Resilience Model framework, emphasising the six relationship-based practices and how we can use this model to build resilience in our lives and our communities.

This event is taking place on Thursday, August 18th between:

  • 9 - 10am PDT
  • 12 - 1 pm EDT
  • 6 - 7 pm BST

To access the log-in details to join this free event, please register in advance. Zoom information will be shared 48 hours, 2 hours, and 10 minutes prior to the event start time.

RSA US Virtual Salons usually occur on the fourth Thursday of each month; they aim to create open dialogue and a space for RSA US Fellows to connect across geography over the issues of our times. Join a Salon to get to know other RSA US Fellows and our interests, passions, and perspectives. Salons are supported through the moderation of a volunteer to ensure that a diversity of voices are heard. We invite all Fellows to join this discussion to deepen the ways we can connect with each other across the country!
