t’s a risky world out there. Loss of a major funder, inappropriate or unethical behavior by a staff member, a technology “crash” or a hack of your online systems or extreme weather events. These and a host of other scenarios hold the potential to put the function and future of a nonprofit organization into serious jeopardy. The March First Mondays topic will present an overview of a process to help your organization assess potential risks, integrate risk management into your strategy development and implementation, and create a governance structure to position your organization to avoid threats where possible, and manage through them if a crisis occurs.

- Dr. Lewis Atkinson leads the Haines Center for Strategic Management in Australia. Lewé is a natural systems thinker and architect of strategic change. He holds a PhD in Chemical Engineering and a Masters of Business Administration.
