Justice Connect training: Managing Legal Risk with a Diverse Volunteer Workforce

February 16, 2021 @ 12:45 pm - 2:00 pm

Our volunteers contribute so much to the community – bringing with them a wealth of experience, values and diverse backgrounds. As the manager of a team of volunteers, how do you make sure you’re harnessing this potential while maintaining a safe and legal volunteer program?

Can you still engage someone if they’ve got a criminal record? How should you deal with an older volunteer in the time of a pandemic? What can you do on a small budget to make your workplace more accessible for people with disability? This workshop-style webinar will use practical case studies to highlight the kind of issues you need to consider to build and grow a successful and diverse volunteer workforce.

We’ll cover: 

  • Work health & safety obligations
  • Anti-discrimination laws
  • Screening checks
  • Practical tips on how to balance your legal obligations while embracing a diverse volunteer workforce

You’ll also get:

  • An opportunity to ask questions
  • A copy of webinar recording (available for 30 days)
  • Information on further resources and support

Cost: $30 - $50
