Many believe their nonprofit organization is not at risk when it comes to unethical activity and scandal. After all, we got into this work because we all believe in the greater good, right? Not so fast. The fact is, the world is complicated – and your staff and board bring with them their own sense of what is right…Their own cultural models and values…Their own ethos. It is critical that we, as social-good organizations, don’t rely on individuals to decide what kind of ethical framework best suits our missions. The time is right to safeguard our organizations, our missions, and our communities.

Join us for an engaging online course based on Independent Sector’s Principles of Good Governance and Ethical Practice. This practical training walks you through the key issues and risks facing a nonprofit organization, providing real-world examples, tools, and strategies. You will leave armed with a toolkit of resources that will institutionalize ethical decision-making at your organization.

You will leave this course armed with:

  • An understanding of the situations and behaviors that put an organization at risk;
  • Practical strategies for how to safeguard your mission and organization;
  • A resource library with sample policies and procedures;
  • A national network of like-minded professionals.
