In the era of the #MeToo movement, it is more important than ever that organizations have effective policies to address workplace discrimination, harassment, and retaliation.  Every organization should have updated policies on these topics to ensure employees understand the standard of workplace conduct and the organization’s procedures for addressing violations.  This clinic offers nonprofits the opportunity to receive a review of their nonprofits’ anti-harassment and nondiscrimination policies, or to have new policies drafted by pro bono volunteers.  After participating in the clinic, nonprofits will leave the clinic with updated or new policies.  If selected to participate, you will meet with a team of volunteers who will assist your organization by reviewing and revising your employment policies, with a specific focus on anti-harassment & non-discrimination policies.

To Register: Complete and submit the online Intake Form found here or before April 11. Please note, this clinic is at maximum capacity.  Any organization that submits an application between now and April 11, will be placed on a waiting list.

Your responses will assist the clinic’s organizers in determining your eligibility for the clinic and in identifying and avoiding conflicts of interest issues.

You will be notified of your application status shortly after April 11. Should your organization be selected for participation in the clinic, your Executive Director, Board Chair, or other senior staff or Board Member responsible for governing or managing your organization must be able to participate in the clinic. If your organization does not qualify to participate, we may be able to offer you information about organizations in the Virginia area that may be able to give you the assistance you need.

We look forward to receiving your completed intake form. Should you have any questions in the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact Alison Roussy, Director of Administration at aroussy@grbf.org.
