May 16, 2017 – Risk Management Basics

11:00am Pacific Time, 2:00pm Eastern Time (60 minutes)
Risk is anything that can derail your nonprofit from accomplishing its mission. Risk management is a discipline for identifying risk, assessing how serious or sever the risks are, and determining ways to avoid or minimize harm and financial losses. Risk management is not some mystery. Enlightened risk taking requires awareness of the potential downsides or a new approach or program, thoughtful planning for positive outcomes, and simultaneously ensuring that there is as soft a landing as possible when a venture doesn’t work out as planned. Our Director of Loss Control will provide some simple frameworks for organizing and implementing basic risk management practices in a nonprofit organization; share the most common risks facing nonprofits based on 20+ years of claims history; look at some specific areas of risk and what you can and should be doing to minimize your exposure.

August 8, 2017 – Accommodating Mental Health in the Workplace

11:00am Pacific Time, 2:00pm Eastern Time (60 minutes)
According to the National Mental Health Association there are more than 200 classified mental illnesses, including such illnesses as depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and anxiety disorder.  The Americans with Disabilities Act requires those employees who suffer  mental health disabilities to be treated the same as employees who have physical disabilities. However, because of the stigma associated with mental illness, many employers prefer to overlook or ignore employees’ mental health issues.  Employers have the same duty to engage in the interactive process with employees with mental disabilities as they do with employees who have physical disabilities with the ultimate goal of determining accommodations that will allow employees to perform the essential functions of their jobs.   This webinar will examine the issues involved in accommodating employees with mental health issues so that employers can successfully negotiate this  “slippery slope” in the workplace.

11:00am Pacific Time, 2:00pm Eastern Time (90 minutes)
