As a fundraising professional, you may have found yourself in challenging situations over the years. Have you ever been speechless when a donor says something offensive? Have you been in situations where you look and feel like an outsider? Have you compromised yourself to meet a stakeholder’s request? Have you advocated for ‘mission drift’ to secure a donation? Do you have a hard time understanding how you can make an impact and address the calls to action in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and Black Lives Matter movement both personally and in your work as a fundraiser? Have you felt powerless in meetings with senior leadership? Then this workshop is for you!
Navigating Privilege & Power Dynamics in Fundraising with Tanya Hannah Rumble, CFRE and Nicole McVan, MA has not been offered by AFP Vancouver before. Don’t miss this session, which will allow participants who come with an open mind and heart to build more resilience and power in themselves.
In the workshop, we will work to uncover our privilege as settlers and learn how we can take individual responsibility through learning existing reconciliation wise practices. We will discover how we can authentically understand and use privilege and disempowerment in relationship building with donors and our own organization. You’ll walk away with practical and tactical strategies to harness your power in navigating and building relationships with donors, volunteers, board members, and colleagues, and the tools to ultimately be more authentic and effective.
