Founded during WWII and in the aftermath of the Great Depression, Coro grew out of an environment characterized by great uncertainty and rapid change. Recognizing the importance of equipping individuals with the skills, knowledge, and networks to be resilient leaders, Coro Southern California has consistently responded to challenges facing the region to provide innovative leadership programs.

Born out of the physical distancing of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Leadership and Resilience in Times of Uncertainty virtual leadership series showcases examples of resilient leadership from across sectors and industries. These inspiring webinars highlight the power of adaptive leadership in the face of uncertainty.
