VIC The Rise of Moral Injury in the Not-for-Profit Workplace

Join this lunch and learn as we unpack the rise of “Moral Injury” in the not-for-profit workplace.

Not-for-Profit people, especially fundraisers, are often professionally driven by a values-based framework of ethical and moral decision-making.  We are passionate workers who choose to dedicate our purpose-driven work to a cause that is bigger than ourselves.

We also know that it’s hard work to raise funds. People often criticise us for writing begging letters and bothering people for money. They say that our work is manipulative, that we take away client’s dignity, or that we produce poverty porn –  but we’re just trying to do our job well.

When our morals or ethics are called into question, it can have a big effect on our mental health. Fundraisers are leaving roles, organisations, and even the profession, like never before. This means that key roles are becoming like revolving doors.

As managers, executives, and leaders in our sector, it’s our job to make sure that our teams’ mental safety is taken care of.

This session will explore how it impacts your staff, and what you can do to create a psychologically safe culture for your team to thrive.
