1:00 pm: Networking
Session will conclude at 1:30 pm
Foley & Lardner LLP*
321 N. Clark Street, Suite 2800
This program will begin with networking followed by an important discussion about eliminating sexual harassment in the nonprofit workplace.


At Giving Tree Associates, we believe that organizations of all sizes can change the world.
That’s why our consultants have spent the last decade helping small and mid-size organizations.
As a woman-owned firm in a female-dominated industry, we are also aware of
the need to build a culture of safety and respect for the women (and men) who
dedicate their lives to serving the nonprofit community.

The topic of sexual harassment in the workplace shot to the forefront of a national dialogue
last year and in our opinion, it was long overdue. Abuse and harassment in the nonprofit sector
have rarely been discussed openly, despite the fact that nonprofits are hardly immune
to this relatively common occurrence. 

On March 22, 2018, Giving Tree Associates will open a conversation about strategies and tactics
for creating a safe and respectful workplace for all nonprofit employees.

Thus, we have invited some of Chicago’s most distinguished nonprofit leaders and
employment specialists to join us in tackling this important issue and sharing
concrete steps we can all take to ensure a fair and equitable working environment.
