March Monthly Meeting - How checking your bias can make us better fundraising professionals
Time & Location
About the Event
We will consider how our biases influence our work as fundraisers, and we will talk about how our work is affected by the social issues and inequalities that have become part of mainstream conversations over the past year. We will also discuss what we are noticing in our workplaces, in conversations with donors, and in our broader Triad community. You will come away from this session with knowledge and awareness to help you be a more inclusive fundraiser.
Our learning objectives for this presentation are:
· Heighten awareness: Have participants consider their personal perceptions of identity, how these perceptions shape and inform how they see, receive, and behavior toward others and the impact this has on them personally and professionally.
· Challenge thinking: Better understand how unconscious bias (the assumptions we all make about people, usually without realizing we are doing it) may impact our decision making, judgements, and how we navigate personal and professional situations.
· Explore how we act: Consider how our work is affected by the social issues and inequalities that have become part of mainstream conversations over the past year.
