Event Description

'Me Too’ 2.0:  The Oregon Workplace Fairness Act for Board Members

P.K. Runkles-Pearson, Partner, Miller Nash Graham & Dunn LLP

In 2019, the Oregon Legislature instituted sweeping reforms to the way employers of all sizes respond to complaints of harassment.  Most of these changes go into effect in October 2020. Learn what questions to ask to protect your organizations from liability related to harassment claims, and to limit turnover by improving workplace morale in the process.

Area of Nonprofit Excellence - Financial Oversight

Every learning opportunity NAO offers is aligned with one of nine areas of our Principles and Practices for Nonprofit Excellence that NAO believes are critical to every nonprofit’s effectiveness and success. Diversity, equity and inclusion are essential for a thriving, effective and successful nonprofit; therefore, DE&I is embedded across all nine areas.

This event focuses on Financial Oversight. For additional resources in this category, visit: Financial Oversight and Governance.
