Amid a wave of #MeToo activity, some global NGOs and peacekeeping organizations have been brought into the media spotlight amid allegations of sexual abuse, molestation, and exploitation. Ensuing reputational damage has threatened donor and partner relationships and shaken their organizational effectiveness.

This complimentary members-only one-hour webinar hosted by Humentum industry partner, HUB International, will include a specialty risk consultant, an NGO’s chief legal officer, and a nationally-recognized nonprofit insurance and risk executive to examine:

  • The root causes of sexual misconduct

  • Proven best practices to avoid and mitigate sexual misconduct risk

  • Practical challenges for global organizations

  • One NGO’s first-hand experience and perspective

  • Key considerations in arranging bulletproof commercial insurance protection

The final segment of the program invites a moderated Q&A exchange.
