The overarching objective is to create a path to resilience through impact assessment and leadership. To accomplish this objective, IAIA23 endeavors to curate a collection of presentations relating to conceptual advances and contextual applications of impact assessment that exemplify agility, transformation, innovation, leadership, sustainability, and resilience.
How can impact assessment and leadership accelerate transformation and sustain resilience in a world marred by adversities that require immediate, impactful solutions?
Our 21st century world is volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous. Corporations, governments, and societies have always had to embrace change in order to operate successfully during turbulent times. However, recent events such as the COVID-19 pandemic suggest that change alone is insufficient. Instead, leaders today must ensure that change is both agile and transformative so that adversities can be fought with resilience and effectiveness.
The world is not short of adversities, ranging from climate change to global humanitarian crises. Ensuring the health and resilience of the triple bottom line of prosperity, people, and planet should become a non-negotiable top priority for all to achieve greater sustainability.
Against this backdrop, IAIA23 calls for empirical and pragmatic contributions that showcase how impact assessment and leadership can accelerate transformation and sustain resilience in a world that requires immediate, impactful solutions. The rationale for this call is twofold: 1) what gets assessed has the possibility to get leadership attention, and 2) what gets leadership attention gets actioned.
