Inclusion & Risk: A THINK TANK Conversation @ ECVO Training Room
Nov 23 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am

Topic: Inclusion

This Fall in Think Tank Conversations, we’ve been exploring risk. In September we looked at what risk means for think tanker’s individual programs.

This month we’re talking inclusion.

How does risk averseness increase barriers for diverse needs?

How can you spport volunteers with specific needs in your organization?

Join us for this Think Tank and explore what risk really means for your volunteer program and how you can manage it while increasing inclusion in your organization. Learn from others and begin to rethink the way you successfully engage volunteers in your organization.

Attend this brainstorming, problem-solving and idea sharing session with an open mind and you will come away feeling rejuvenated and ready to take action!

THINK TANK Conversations is a place for those who manage and engage volunteers to come together for a short but useful session to problem solve and brainstorm as well as connect with those who work with volunteers.

THINK TANK Conversations will be held five times a year.
