Podcast alert!

This session addresses the essential and complicated task of creating an organizational culture of accountability and transparency. In the wake of several human trafficking organizations coming under scrutiny for financial and ethical misconduct, it is time for every organization- large or small- to build a culture that detects and prevents abuse and that protects and empowers everyone equally. Maya Angelou said, "Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better." Rapha's approach to organizational culture is based in part on continuous learning. As an organization learns better practices, better policies, and better ways to protect clients and staff, it must build that new knowledge into it's culture.

Objectives from Presentation:
1.) Understand the role of organizational culture in detecting and preventing misconduct.

2.) Exploring policies, procedures, and practices that support free and fair reporting of concerns within an organization.

3.) Internalizing the philosophy of Maya Angelou: "Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better," and to adopt an organizational culture of humility, learning, and transparency.
