Educational Program March 29: Trust, Ethics and Public Policy with AFP's Jason Lee, JD

Trust, ethics and public policy have increasingly become huge issues in our national cultural landscape, and they have never been more important for the fundraising profession. In our 24/7, fast-paced, constant-messaging world, the key is for us to slow down and think through the sort of lives we want to live, our moral values and the ethical situation we face—and then encourage discussion about our professional moral lives.  AFP Chief Advocacy & Strategy Officer, Jason Lee will lead participants in an exploration of the opportunities and dilemmas ethics presents every day, including a discussion of how ethics is a shared responsibility among staff and board members.
