SA & NT Chapter Event - WOMEN IN RISK; Risk Focus for Board & Executive "What are they worrying about and how can risk management help? 

The RMIA is holding its Women in Risk event in June this year. We have a wonderful panel of Board and Executive members to hear about risk from their perspective – what they are worrying about, beyond COVID, and what they need from risk managers and their businesses.

Don’t forget – this event is open to everyone (not just women)!

About the Evening

We are planning for this to be a face to face event. PwC’s facilities are very generous and there is plenty of space for social distancing if needed. We have an amazing panel of speakers to talk about the risks facing business, with three key questions: 

  • What risk exposures are Board and Executive members thinking about?
  • How can risk managers support them to manage those risks?
  • How can risk managers help them to create opportunities for their business?
