#MeToo and Public Media Fundraising

  • Wednesday - 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM
  • Avenue Ballroom - Floor 4
  • #PMDMC18

The #MeToo phenomenon is an important movement that's raising awareness about unacceptable behavior in a variety of settings. As we have seen, the public media world is not exempt. For fundraisers in public media, there can be an additional layer of complexity as, more often than not, we find ourselves conducting business in work environments that are not our offices, and with individuals who are not employees of the station. Join us for a meaningful discussion about how stations create a culture that allows fundraising staff to know what to expect from major donors, foundation officers, corporate supporters, and volunteers.
