Without a Doubt: How to Navigate Through Ethical Grey Areas

A workshop for those on the fundraising frontline

While legal advice is important, we should all be able to recognize the situations where ethics are called into question – sometimes it isn’t so black and white. We believe that the ability to make the judgment call about ethics is something that all of us have innately as human beings; we simply need to learn to trust our gut feelings and put ourselves in a position of empathy.

Participants will leave this workshop with a better understanding of how to identify ethical issues, how to handle these situations, who to turn to, and how to prevent problems. This will be a practical workshop with case studies and group discussions.
