For a community of professionals who saw travel as essential to their work — missions, field visits, delegations — COVID-19 and its variants continues to cause a significant shift in the NGO sector; and as a result, it has become more prevalent for local staff to work in their countries of origin, and for international staff to take a much more conservative approach to travel.
These pandemic-related realities have created the need to shift perspectives, strategize new ways of thinking, and have many NGOs asking some very important questions about travel risk management and duty of care including:
- How can we effectively assess the risks associated with non-‘negotiable travel’ for our international staff; AND simultaneously assess the risks to our in-country travelers?
- What does an effective travel risk management strategy ‘look like’ for NGOs in this new(ish) normal?
In this thought-provoking webinar, On Call International’s Eric White, Allegiant Global Partners’ Anne Brnger, and nonprofit organization’s All Hands and Hearts’ Gary Pitts, will answer these questions (and more!) as they discuss NGOs’ shifting perspectives on travel, as well as the resulting global risk management procedures that can help NGOs protect the interests of their programs, their missions, and their staff. Drawing on White’s expansive experience in global risk assessment, Brnger’s knowledge of duty of care solutions for the NGO sector, and All Hands in Hearts’ hands-on, industry experience, participants will leave with lessons learned and best practices for effectively aligning their travel risk management strategies to our new(ish) normal.
