Challenges and Opportunities
Thursday, September 24, 2020

Catch this special introductory episode of Deconstructing Development, the only one this year which will be open to all in the fundraising community for no charge.
Deconstructing Development is a special series, developed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, to bring the fundraising community direct access to experts in areas important to achieving professional success. Each segment includes an introduction, followed by a 30-minute Q & A interview, allowing the WID community to write in with questions for our experts.
The COVID-19 pandemic has created a New Normal in many fields, including Major Gifts Fundraising. Join us as we interview our Major Gifts experts, Patricia Hill, who will discuss the opportunities and challenges faced by this key fundraising area.

Creating a Culture of Ethical Fundraising: Combining Ethics and Effectiveness
Monday, November 9, 2020
12:00 - 1:00 p.m.
$25 for Members
$35 for Non-Members
As news headlines have made abundantly clear, gift officers face particular ethical challenges as they identify and cultivate donor prospects. Leaders of all levels are required to make critical decisions about performing due diligence, declining a gift that does not align with an organization’s mission, and responding to interactions with prospects that are unpleasant or worse. Against the pressure of quarterly goals, ambitious campaign targets, and now a global pandemic, these decision points require an ongoing commitment to the highest ethical standards.
Women In Development is proud to convene a panel of leaders from across different fields who are working to prepare their colleagues to address these ethical challenges in a constantly changing environment. Join us as they share their experiences and insights on this relevant topic and offer actionable ideas that will benefit all fundraisers at all stages of their career.
