  • October Coffee & Connections: Applying Ethical Behavior to Everyday Scenarios

    Oct 18, 08:00 AM - 09:00 AM (ET)
    One of the core functions of the AFP community is to promote high ethical behavior in the fundraising profession. But how well do we do at applying that philosophy to everyday scenarios in our work?

    Join in a peer guided discussion as we explore real life scenarios that challenged fundraising professionals' commitment to ethical standards and learn how to navigate through each one.

    Have an example of a ethical situation that you yourself experienced and want others to weigh in on? Submit your scenario to amikulsky@berksarl.org and have it be reviewed at this event!
