Event description

Description

The decent work approach presents an opportunity for the nonprofit sector to act as a champion of working conditions and social policies that ensure supportive work environments for their organizations. With healthier, happier, and better-supported workers, organizations can better meet their mission and better deliver their programs and services. Learn more about the concept of decent work, explore current examples in the sector and brainstorm some practical ways we can collaborate to build decent work within and beyond our sector.
