Learn about organizational resilience and identify the key dimensions around which nonprofits are developing their resilience strategies.
About this Event
Crises such as pandemics, economic downturns, scandals and natural disasters, challenge the viability and effectiveness of nonprofit organizations and compel them to develop preventive and coping strategies to ameliorate the shocks associated with such events.
The current pandemic has demonstrated that nonprofits are making themselves more resilient in multiple, often innovative ways. In this Nonprofit Management Series webinar, Dr. Dennis Young will discuss the concept of organizational resilience and identify the key dimensions around which nonprofits are developing their resilience strategies, including cost structure, revenue composition, technology, entrepreneurship and collaboration.
The diverse experiences of two exemplary organizations will then be described by Noha Ryder, CFO of Apollo’s Fire, a performing arts organization in Cleveland; and Brian Schreiber, Executive Director of the Jewish Community Center of Pittsburgh, joined by Mark Young, Director of JResponse® of the JCC Association of North America. This webinar offers a preview of a prospective instructional program in nonprofit crisis management to be offered by the National Center on Nonprofit Enterprise in collaboration with the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences. Sponsored by the MNO program; Dr. Robert Fischer, Chair.
