Stewarding a Safety Culture in a World of Abuse
Creating a safe environment for a nonprofit begins with its leaders. As stewards of nonprofits, organizational leaders are given the responsibility of protecting the welfare of volunteers, employees, and those they serve. This responsibility begins with training, education, and implementation. Failure to adequately train your employees and volunteers subjects you to negligence, and in a world where abuse claims are prevalent, nonprofit leaders should be well-educated and prepared to prevent and/or react properly to these cases within their organization. If a child or adult is abused while in the care of your nonprofit, you could be at fault for any misconduct that occurs. In this session, Care Providers and Praesidium will cover the current trends and challenges of abuse in nonprofit organizations and how to promote a culture of safety within your organization. Attendees will learn how to protect those in their care while helping to preserve trust within their organizations.
