The Institute of Risk Management (IRM) is the world’s leading enterprise-wide risk education Institute. We are independent, well-respected advocates of the risk profession, owned by practising risk professionals. IRM passionately believes in the importance of risk management and that investment in education and continuing professional development leads to more effective risk management.
We provide qualifications, short courses and events at a range of levels from introductory to expert. IRM supports risk professionals by providing the skills and tools needed to put theory into practice in order to deal with the demands of a constantly changing, sophisticated and challenging business environment. We operate internationally, with members and students in over 90 countries, drawn from a variety of risk-related disciplines and a wide range of industries.
As a not-for-profit organisation, IRM reinvests any surplus from its activities in the development of international qualifications, membership, short courses and events.
The Institute of Risk Management responds to government gender pay gap legislation
Nicola Crawford CFIRM, Chair of the Institute of Risk Management says:
“In the name of equality, we as an Institute wholeheartedly support the government’s move to require companies with more than 250 staff to report on the gender pay gap by 2018.
We support Virgin Money and Deloitte who have already published their figures and hope to see many more organisations following suit. Enterprise Risk Management is inherent in every organisation, in every sector globally, and people management and the associated risks are important to the success of any organisation.
As Chair of the Institute of Risk Management I am leading a series of thought leadership events and surveys on women in risk, the debate is starting on our LinkedIn group.
My goal is to promote diversity in risk management, to harvest the unique experiences, skills and perspectives that women can bring to optimize decisions and build positive risk cultures. We will achieve this by uniting and empowering women in risk through networking, discussing and sharing of experiences.”
