NORMAN, Okla. - eTradeWire -- The University of Oklahoma is launching a four-part OU Global Risks & Threats Series. The first event is scheduled for Saturday, June 6, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Central Time (USA) and will focus on The Pandemic Threat: Risks and Impacts of COVID-19. Topics include the latest threats, trends, and strategies on how to address the most critical issues of the pandemic. The full series will take place via Zoom.

Adriana Sanford, the founding director of OU GRTS, will lead-off the events and preside throughout the series.  She is a global threats expert, international television commentator, and former Fortune 500 senior counsel.

"Today, the COVID-19 global pandemic has provided humanity and business with an understanding of our dependency, interconnectedness and need for collective responsibility—something unimaginable six months ago. Every aspect of business and personal life has been challenged, from liberty, access to basic needs, financial impact on retirement savings, to the destruction of precious working capital," said Adriana Sanford.
