Most strategic risks are not insured, but decisions around those risks have profound impacts on business sustainability and growth.  2020 has presented us with two of the most striking examples of these challenges and opportunities.  This session includes an insider’s look into Kraus-Anderson as a case study, having implemented a risk based decision making process that has guided strategies related to the pandemic and diversity and inclusion conversations and objectives.  In this presentation, we will first review a framework to understand enterprise risk management processes and highlight a data driven model to assess risk decisions.  We will then apply those fundamentals to better understand why diversity and inclusion are critical components of a business strategy and how risk management can inform decisions related to the pandemic.  These strategies and practices can be implemented within your organization to create a model to address these current and the risks that 2021 and beyond will bring.
