Risk Management: Nonprofit Leadership in a High Stakes Environment (EMPA)
Nonprofit organizations operate in a complex service, funding and regulatory environment that is characterized by risk. These risks include multi-year contracts with flat funding, capped overhead rates, growing community demand and rigorous performance requirements. As recent nonprofit closures and collapses illustrate, failure by executives and boards to identify, assess, manage and mitigate risk undermines the sustainability of the organizations they lead and poses a serious threat to the millions of people who depend on them.
This course will prepare you to identify, assess, manage, and mitigate risks in your organization. It is designed for nonprofit managers with the understanding that all managers have an opportunity to lead from their seats and positions within their organizations.
