#METOO IN NONPROFIT DEVELOPMENT
Thursday, July 11th, 2019
2:15 PM - 3:30 PM: Breakout 3
Real people. Real organizations. Real problems. As we have learned - although it's no surprise - the question of sexual harassment is relevant to employees of charitable organizations, too. In this interactive session, we will examine what has happened at some organizations, as well as how it could have been prevented. But we will look forward, too. We will ask if policies, or better policies, would make a difference. We will also ask specific questions about our relationships with our donors and our relationships with our co-workers. The time has come - it's actually well past due - for this discussion.
Nonprofits are not immune to the issues that the #MeToo movement has highlighted during the past two years. This two-session presentation will address an uncomfortable, but increasingly needed, dimension to our work in the fundraising profession.
Doug White will discuss developments at nonprofits and ask those in attendance to consider several serious questions related to preventing sexual harassment in the nonprofit workplace and when cultivating donor relationships.
