Today, I speak to Sabrina Segal about managing risk in the so -called “third sector”, which is the charity and non-profit sector. Sabrina is an international development and humanitarian assistance professional. She has worked on the ground during many humanitarian crises and international development roles in the likes of the Middle East and North Africa, Sub -Saharan Africa, and South Asia.
She is an attorney by training, but for the past few years has been involved in risk management and decision making in the third sector. And she hosts a podcast called Tolerable Risk, which provides insights on these topics.
And we get into all of that in this conversation. And I always find insights about risk and decision making from other contexts to be fascinating because there are always a number of transferable things. The third sector deals with high stakes issues, use, complex relationships, and resource constraints. You will hear that that context is incredibly important when it comes to managing risk. You will also hear that ‘traditional risk management’ simply doesn’t work in this context. And we talk a lot about that. And what I find very impressive and inspirational about what Sabrina does is that she is setting out to change that, and you will certainly hear more about that too.
