Taking risks the safe way : risk management and insurance practices of Ontario's voluntary sector by Agnes G Meinhard( )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By virtue of their mission to help vulnerable populations, many nonprofit organizations engage in programs and services that inevitably involve some unavoidable risks. Operating their programs under the assumption that 'doing good' by providing important public services gives them some form of immunity, taking protective action against liability risks was and is not a high priority activity among most nonprofit organizations. However, some high profile lawsuits, increasing numbers of claims brought against voluntary organizations and steep increases in insurance rates during 'hard' cycles, have raised the sector's awareness of the need "to develop appropriate risk management systems and procedures" (Gaskin, 2006, p. 7). A growing body of literature from the US, Great Britain, Australia and Canada now offers voluntary sector organizations information and advice about managing risks and obtaining the appropriate insurance. However, prior to this research study, there has been no focused investigation of insurance and risk management practices in Ontario's nonprofit sector. Following are brief summaries of the research findings

Leadership diversity in the nonprofit sector : baby steps, big strides, and bold stances by Christopher Fredette( )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This research examines the composition of the boards of directors and senior leaders of organizations through three surveys of board chairs and executive directors. Results indicate that there is a need to better reflect the demographic characteristics of the Greater Toronto Area. Our findings indicate that diversity, even in small amounts, benefits boards and organizations in substantial ways by adding new and fresh perspectives in decision-making, bringing innovative new thinking to bear, and extending the reach of organizational networks. In addition, leadership diversity was found to contribute to organizational governance by helping to shape and guide the strategic direction of the board, improving board governance procedures, strengthening the board's financial management, and enhancing fundraising
