People & Culture

People & Culture: How to have constructive conversations and ask those awkward questions.

The sector has seen significant changes.

Many organizations still struggle with how they can address the changing landscape to meet not only funding needs for services, but how they operate overall for staff and those they serve.

The fundraising profession has also changed - from pay equity challenges, workflow and division of duties, to examining human resource policies on how organization serve and protect their staff.
