Safeguard Your Impact
In an uncertain world.
Passing the Torch
As of October 15, 2021, Open Road transitioned its Risk Management work into an open-source community of practice for all. While Open Road will continue to practice what we preach, we pass the torch leaving our tools to our peers, grantees, and community to carry this conversation forward.
Take the Course
On October 12, we launched a new e-course in partnership with Candid, “Risk & Reward: Safeguarding Impact in an Uncertain World,” sharing all our lessons about risk over the years.
