Mapping Strategies for Inclusive Prospect Development - PART II
Recorded On: 05/12/2021
Prospect Development plays a critical role in fundraising. We see the big picture. We identify not only prospects, but patterns in constituent behavior. We utilize best practices to optimize portfolios and map strategies to enhance quantitative outcomes. But what happens when our best practices create awareness gaps that result in missed opportunity? And how do we respond to the imperative to shift our lenses and expand our repertoires to promote inclusion?
We know that diversity, equity and inclusion is a better practice strategy. What may be more elusive is how to apply DEI to prospect development methodologies in tangible ways. This two-part webinar series will provide a step-by-step guide to imbed DEI principles across each of the Body of Knowledge domains. Participants will learn practical tips and tactics that build on industry core competencies to drive inclusive better practices for prospect development.
This webinar is worth (1) CFRE point.
