Addressing #MeToo in Nonprofit Development - Part I

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.

During the morning session, 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.

Luncheon Presentation:
Addressing #MeToo in Nonprofit Development - Part II

Moderator: Doug White, Philanthropic Advisor
Panelists to date:

  • Jason Hegy, Civil Rights Attorney
  • Elana Lippa, Director of Gift Planning, Charles E. Smith Life Communities

Our conversations from the morning session will continue with contributions by a panel of industry professionals and experts, and questions from the audience, moderated by Doug White.
