Recorded April 24, 2020, this webinar is the second in a three-part series on responding to COVID-19. Watch the first part here.

For many nonprofits, COVID-19 has required gut-wrenching decisions about staffing as programs are postponed or dramatically redesigned. Even nonprofits whose programming has not been negatively impacted are nonetheless experiencing significant shifts in how they do business, including increased working from home by employees.

For organizations that center values of equity and justice, managing the people-oriented aspects of the business during a crisis like COVID-19 presents both challenges and opportunities. Decision-makers in these nonprofits—human resources directors, senior staff, and executive directors—are in a daily struggle to balance urgency and equity. They are meeting the demands of the moment, but also learning from these emergency responses potential strategies for more equitable human resource management in the future.

Join us for a candid conversation among human resource professionals who lead with their values and are making the best decisions they can make, just as you are, for their employees and their organizations.
