"As leaders of volunteer engagement, we’re often asked to make difficult decisions. How do we know if the decisions we’re making are the right ones? When you’re in this type of dilemma how do you intervene or lead? In this highly interactive workshop we’ll explore how ethics guide the work we do leading and engaging volunteers, and practice using ethical decision making. Attendees will leave with a worksheet to help introduce and use ethical decision making in their organization. Building on the 5 Ethical Core Values and Principles of Volunteer Engagement outlined in Professional Ethics in Volunteer Administration, published by the Council for Certification in Volunteer Administration in 2016, participants will explore the role ethics play in their daily work. Too often, an organization’s culture doesn’t support, or actively discourages, ethical decision making with regards to volunteer engagement. Participants will explore ethical decision making using real-life scenarios. Attendees will also be encouraged to share their own ethical dilemmas in a safe and supportive environment. We’ll practice using ethical decision making as a conflict resolution tool, and participants will leave with a worksheet to help introduce and use ethical decision making in their organization."
