Getting Creative with a Framework for Assessing Risk Holistically

Identifying and creatively engaging with risk has never been more important for nonprofits in artistic and community-serving communities. This interactive session will help participants consider new ways to think about risk engagement, introduce six categories for a holistic view of risk, and prepare participants to assess and mitigate risk in their own organizations. Attendees will have the chance to practice using the framework with a risk management worksheet, identify a small number of potential risks, and then pinpoint organizational vulnerabilities across the aforementioned six categories related to these risks. Participants do not need to have engaged formally with risk management concepts before, but should have a broad understanding of many aspects of their organization (finances and funding, HR practices, crisis plans etc).
