What’s Ethics Got to Do with It?
Nonprofits leaders typically think about their accountability to a core group of stakeholders: the board, funders, staff, and communities served. But where does the community rank among that list? And do nonprofits have an ethical obligation to think about their impact on the communities most burdened by inequity and disparity in their area of work? We invite participants to discuss how today’s gold standard of nonprofit ethics, Independent Sector’s Principles for Good Governance and Ethical Practice, could better consider our sector’s role to address inequity, close disparities, and put community in the center of our decision-making.
