Event description
Volunteer Fairfax presents two virtual Community Conversations featuring leading voices working to eradicate systemic racism and injustice.

About this event

There are many ways in which volunteer engagement systems reflect a characteristic that there is only “one right way” to do something; for example, the formal processes for onboarding volunteers, the requirement of an ongoing commitment for certain roles, and the limited voice volunteers may have in how services are delivered.

The Minnesota Association of Volunteer Administrators held a series of listening sessions with BIPOC volunteers to learn more about the barriers put up by the “one right way” mentality, along with brainstorming other ways of engaging volunteers that are more inclusive and equitable.

In this session, Lisa Joyselin, Equity and Inclusion Manager for the Minnesota Association for Volunteer Administration, will lead us in this webinar to discuss the key themes of what interviewed volunteers had to say and share their ideas – along with ways we’ve seen these ideas in action – for making “many different ways” a norm in volunteerism.
