Insulting phil, unconscious gender bias, and more…

February 10, 2015

You absolutely must read this series of blogs from Wild Woman Fundraising, Mazarine Trez. And I’ve added a few other tidbits.

Then talk about these blogs (and all the marvelous links to other articles). Talk with your work colleagues (and not just in the development office!) Talk with your board and your board’s development committee. And get your professional association to talk about some of this stuff.

In no particular order intention order…

Insulting philanthropy. A continuing (and growing?) growing trend!

But wait…there’s more! (Also, make sure you click through the links.)

Unconscious gender bias (Just the unconscious type…which is worse, I think.)

And more….

  • If you’d like to insult donors, read Eric Friedman’s Reinventing Philanthropy: A Framework for More Effective Giving.

So much good stuff out there. So many things we could share with our staff colleagues, donors, board members…And engage them in conversation.

    Oh wow Simone, THANK YOU for linking all of my blog posts! I really really appreciate it.

    one tiny detail-the last link should be “Are you attacKed for your fashion?”

    Thank you so so much for sharing. We need to draw attention to the corporatism gripping the sector and how it is a blanket excuse for a number of just plain mutton-headed practices.

    Thank you again! If anyone would like to comment and have a discussion here I am happy to join in!
