In February 2021, the Association of Fundraising Professionals published the first in a series of reports on fundraiser safety and sexual harassment in the fundraising sector. A study, led by AFP Global, involving eight other fundraising-related organizations showed an urgent need for IDEA in the workplace. Please join us for a conversation about this groundbreaking research. We’ll share industry wide statistics and provide you with the tools you need to Speak Truth to Power in Fundraising.
