Event description
Reflect on how volunteer managers can discover, face and fight hidden biases in volunteer programs, practices, policies and procedures.

About this event

While we may say we want greater diversity and inclusion in our volunteer programs, our actions may not always support that vision. Hidden Biases in Volunteer Management allow participants to reflect on the ways we -- as leaders of volunteer programs -- can discover, face and fight hidden biases in our volunteer program’s practices, procedures and policies. We will reflect on the established structures of our sector and the volunteer programs that may unintentionally be less than welcoming. While this webinar will not solve structural racism and unconscious bias in an hour, we will provide a safe space for volunteer directors, managers, or coordinators to reflect on their own volunteer program and how we can best make a difference.
