How do charities and not-for-profits manage human risk? Given the risks they face and the limited budgets they have available to them, they’re often incredibly innovative when it comes to risk management and compliance. This means there are lessons for all of us in a resource-constrained environment.

On this episode, I’m speaking to Sabrina Segal. She began her career as a lawyer before recognising that working in the third sector — bodies that aren’t public or private sector, in other words, organizations undertaking social activities, like charities or NGOs — was what stimulated her.

In our discussion, we explore the challenges the sector faces and how they go about mitigating the broad range of risks they face. Whether that’s humanitarian charities deploying aid workers into disaster or war zones or even running a charity in a developed country that relies heavily on volunteers. All pose huge challenges from a human risk perspective.
