Many organizations are beginning to intentionally explore the way that bias impacts their work. The challenge often times shows up in deciding on where to begin. This interactive workshop will focus on actions against and in support of inclusion and equity. Participants will have an opportunity to reflect on their organizations and ways they currently stand up to inequities in fundraising as well as how they see others addressing inequities. They will also consider how they would like individuals and institutions to address disparities and what it takes to stand up to it—in the moment and in the long term.
Approved for 1 Hour of CFRE credit.
