WIA: Mitigating Risks – Non-Traditional Thinking

Risk is defined as hazard or chance of loss. Join the Women In Architecture Forum on Thursday, May 8 at 6:00 pm as they discuss active and passive risk management.

“What do you stand to lose?” The list is long: money, business, current and future clients, business relationships and employees…. And above all the life safety and welfare of the public is at risk.

Traditionally design professionals think about reviewing documents, but they don’t think about the other things that can cause a team to perform poorly. All the things on the following list are actually active ways to mitigate risk, but not what we generally think of at first.

· the decision to pursue a project
· terms of your contracts,
· record keeping, policies and procedures
· client relationship
· quality assurance procedures,

Time: 6:00-7:30pm
