In this episode of The NonProfit Voice, Amanda Cole, editor-in-chief of NonProfit PRO, is joined by Gregory Love, a sexual abuse prevention expert, co-founder of MinistrySafe and partner at Love & Norris law firm, and Andrew Shockey, assistant vice president of risk management services for Philadelphia Insurance Companies.
With a growing frustration toward the mistreatment of vulnerable populations in programming, our guests will share their expertise about potential misconduct, particularly with child sexual abuse, and how your nonprofit can make sure it has the proper guardrails in place, including how to run a "fire drill" to assess the risks associated with the population your nonprofit serves and your nonprofit's preparedness for a potential crisis.
