2020 fundamentally changed the way we work. Workers were tasked with balancing professional duties and personal care giving duties like never before. As we look to the future, it’s time for nonprofits to think about the policies they have in place to support their employees. Whether you’re thinking about expanding your existing family leave policy, updating your bereavement policy, or your organization is just beginning these conversations, this session is for you.
Our speaker, Heidi Holliday, is an experienced nonprofit executive and consultant with a deep interest in protecting nonprofit employees from burnout and supporting workers. During this session, she will share her experience working on developing (and benefiting from) family leave policies while managing a lean budget. This session is geared toward Executive Directors/CEO’s, board members, and human resource professionals who are interested in better understanding the policy options and starting the conversation within their own organization.
Following a brief presentation, we’ll use breakout rooms to facilitate small group discussions. You will have the opportunity to brainstorm together, exchange ideas, and gain new insight from your nonprofit peers on how their organization manages family leave or other supportive policies.
This is a program of the Let's Connect: Virtual Discussion Series.
