Starker Lecture Series - Burning Questions: Forest, Fires & People

Forestry Events - 3 hours 5 min ago
Thursday, March 3, 2016 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM

Over the past several years, there has been an increase in the number and severity of wildfires in Oregon.  This trend is expected to continue as the Pacific Northwest become increasingly vulnerable to the effects of a changing climate including, decreased snowpack, higher temperatures and drought, and declining forest health.  These environmental changes increase the risk of catastrophic wildfire impacting communities living in the wildland-urban interface. Wildfire was once considered to be a risk only for people living in rural areas; however it is quickly becoming a reality for urban neighborhoods.  Recent fires in Corvallis and Portland illustrate the need for rural and urban communities alike to adapt to the changing conditions of their environment in which they live. The 2016 Starker Lecture will address the “new normal” of living with fire, and will offer individuals, neighborhoods, and communities useful information and strategies for living in a changing environment.

March 3, 2016,10am-2pm Field Tour.

March 3, 2016, 3:30pm, BEND OREGON, Exposure of Buildings to Wildfire: Vulnerabilities and Mitigation Strategies, Speaker: Steve Quarles, Senior Scientist, Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety

Trust: The Core Catalyst for Collaboration

Environment Events - 3 hours 5 min ago
Wednesday, March 2, 2016 5:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Leadership Academy Pillar: COLLABORATIVE

As a word, trust evokes powerful emotions in people, often stemming from a mixture of experience, societal standards, and individual risk sensitivities.  As a concept, trust has many colors and variations that are not well calibrated across individuals.  Despite this, trust is critical to positive human relationships and crucial to successful organizational endeavors.  In this workshop, we will point out the myths and truths associated with trust—a complex duality that provides a rich area for exploration!  Participation will dramatically increase one's awareness of how trust works in the real world, particularly in organizational (business) settings, and how the level of trust can impact probability of positive progress.
