“Managing for Resilience in a Crisis”

Crises such as pandemics, economic downturns, scandals and natural disasters challenge the viability and effectiveness of nonprofit organizations and compels 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, Dennis Young, professor emeritus at Georgia State University and visiting professor at the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences, 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 be described by:

  • Noha Ryder, CFO of the Apollo’s Fire performing arts organization in Cleveland;
  • Brian Schreiber, executive director of the Jewish Community Center of Pittsburgh; and
  • Mark Young, director of JResponse® of the JCC Association of North America.

This event will take place Tuesday, Dec. 8, at 1 p.m. (EST). Register online to attend the event.
