ETHICS MATTER TO NGO’s
GLOBAL ETHICS DAY 17 OCTOBER 2018 JOHANNESUBRG EVENT
Global Ethics Day is held across the world as an opportunity for organizations of all kinds to focus on ethics. We invite you to join a Johannesburg event, focusing on the NGO sector.
Ethics matter, but what does it mean?
Obviously, ethics are important, and it may be safe to say that most NGO’s came about in response to morally motivated causes. But, what do we actually mean by ‘ethics’? In this session we will define ethics and highlight ethics principles that intuitively guide our everyday choices in the NGO landscape.
THREE FOCUS SESSIONS – CHOOSE ONE TO ATTEND
- Duty of Care – The Cornerstone of NGO Integrity
Ensuring best interest and not doing harm to those who NGO’s are committed to serve is no simple matter! In this session, we will consider the meaning of our duty of care in everyday NGO life: from the ethics of our Governing Boards, management teams, staff and volunteers.
- Safe Working Spaces – Sexual Harassment, an Absolute NO
Feeling safe at work and having our boundaries respected are fundamental. Our duty of care includes putting preventative measures in place to ensure sexual harassment free work environments, as well as taking firm action when boundaries have been crossed. Practical measures to do so will be the focus of this session, and the ethical principles underlying suggested measures will be highlighted.
3. Funding Relationships with Integrity
In this panel discussion the ethics of the relationship between fundraising practitioners and funding partners will be considered. More specifically, together we will explore the ethics principles that shape visions and values, and expectations between those who do the work on the ground and those who provide resources.
