Covid-19 Response and Dallas Business Leader Resources
As we navigate these unprecedented times, organizations are stepping in to provide our community with the resources needed to face the current pandemic. By sharing the Dallas business community’s response to this outbreak, we hope this page
will serve as a guide to company leaders as they manage the impact of COVID-19.
Impact of covid-19
COVID-19 is the most complex challenge we've faced in this generation because it’s being fought on three fronts simultaneously: medically, economically and emotionally. The decisions we make today will impact what our world looks like once
this crisis is behind us.
As an organization comprised of the area’s CEOs and other top business leaders, we are committed to advancing Dallas and the region by serving as the business community’s first responders.
Now more than ever, executives are leading the fight against COVID-19 by developing innovative solutions to address the challenges within their business, the struggles of their employees, and the concerns of the community.
See how Dallas Citizens Council members and their organizations are working to combat the challenges of the pandemic:
“As a leader, you hope and pray that the decisions you make are the right ones. During this time of uncertainty—when there is no clear path—living our values reminds me that we’re staying true to who we are in life and business.”
CEO of The Beck Group and Chairman of Dallas Citizens Council
“As an organization, our purpose is to lead and serve in the moments that matter the most for the people of Dallas. There has never been a more critical time for the members of our organization to step in and assist our community
through these unprecedented circumstances. We must work together to ensure there is a healthy and prosperous future for all Dallasites.”
CEO of Dallas Citizens Council
“In times of crisis, the most important thing is to fiercely protect your culture by not breaching trust and ensuring transparent communications. Your employees are invested in your company, now is the time to ensure their investment
and trust is validated.”
Chairman & CEO of Mary Kay and Member of Dallas Citizens Council
“I am truly inspired by the actions and sacrifices we are making as a collective community in the face of this pandemic. To see people across the world, pitching in and helping each other in ways big and small fills me with confidence
and optimism for the future.”
Chairman & CEO of Jacobs and Member of Dallas Citizens Council
“Sometimes leadership is about what you do more than what you say. Your people have to be able to see you and sense your urgency. Your energy has to come through that videoconferencing screen. It’s critical. They have to see you
are dressed for work and ready for action. The advice I offer right now is, don’t just email. This is the time to pick up the phone and connect.”
Chairman, Dallas Region & South and Midwest Region Head at J.P. Morgan Private Bank, Member of Dallas Citizens Council
