The Many Shades of Grey in Ethical Fundraising.
A dialogue with City Councillor Charlie Clark and Edwards School of Business Professor, Doug Kalesnikoff, to engage the audience in a discussion of the grey areas of ethical decision-making faced by fundraisers. Touching on key areas such as use of funds, transparency, donor expectations, balancing of stakeholder needs, competitive pressures, and individual versus entity ethical views, this session will highlight some real local situations as the presenters and the audience interact through their own ethical frameworks. AFP Saskatoon Ethics Chair Anna Pacik will moderate.
