On October 21st, 25 or 30 folks gathered at Idealist’s offices in NYC to talk “feminism in practice.” During this first Feminists at Work salon, several of us spoke about the unique challenges women face in the nonprofit sector. In addition to the challenge of setting boundaries as women, we also have to contend with the cultural expectation of sacrifice in the name of a cause that is dominant among nonprofits. (Read more about what came out of the larger conversation).
To explore all of this more and follow up on one of the conversations that began October 21st, we’re convening again at Idealist on December 3rd to talk about how we can bring (and have brought) feminist practices to work that take on the culture of sacrifice in nonprofit work. Please join us and please bring along a friend/colleague! Register here.
Allison Jones, CV Harquail, and Lex Schroeder will serve as your hosts for the evening, but this will be a community conversation. Please let us know via email if you have any accessibility or food-related concerns that we can help with.
