Massachusetts Pay Equity Law: Is Your Nonprofit Ready?
Feb 15 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

Please RSVP for this event by February 13.

On August 1, Governor Baker signed a bipartisan pay equity bill, passed unanimously by both legislative branches, to ensure equal pay for comparable work for all Massachusetts workers and equal opportunities to earn competitive salaries in the workplace. The new law, going into effect on July 1, 2018, will prevent pay discrimination for comparable work based on gender. It also allows employees to freely discuss their salaries with coworkers and prohibits employers from requiring applicants to provide their salary history before receiving a formal job offer.

Come and learn more about this new law and what your nonprofit as an employer can do and can no longer do. The law will affect your existing pay scheme, employee handbook, hiring process manual and related policies. Employment law expert Hilary Massey of Seyfarth Shaw will lead this 90-minute seminar.

Presenter: Hillary Massey, Seyfarth Shaw LLP

TNB Roundtable: Create Your 2018 Nonprofit Storytelling Plan
Feb 15 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

TNB is pleased to invite nonprofit professionals to a Roundtable session about creating a storytelling plan for your organization. Our featured guest will be Julia Campbell, the author of “Storytelling in the Digital Age: A Guide for Nonprofits.”

In this session, we will be experimenting with a new learning-by-doing format that we call “study hall.” Rather than focusing on a presentation, participants will be using specially designed templates to create storytelling plans for their nonprofit organizations. Julia will be actively providing assistance to all.

‘Raising awareness and filling the pipeline with new donors and engaged supporters is the ultimate goal of any nonprofit online marketing plan. In September, we walked through the process I use with my clients to create a 90-day online marketing plan for your nonprofit. In my experience, 90-day plans are preferable to annual plans or even one, two, and three-year marketing plans, because they allow for improvement and evaluation in the digital world that is changing at a breath-taking pace.

‘However, some nonprofit online marketing efforts fail because they don’t use effective storytelling as to fuel the fire of their online marketing plan.

‘In this special, hands-on study hall session, nonprofit professionals will learn how to fill out and use the planning templates provided in the book “Storytelling in the Digital Age: A Guide for Nonprofits,” and receive coaching and encouragement during the session.’

We will fill out the following templates during this session:

  • Story Collection Worksheet (addendum to the book)
  • Social Media Content Calendar Template
  • Storytelling Calendar Template

Nonprofit professionals will walk away with the tools they need to drive their own successful digital storytelling and marketing plans at their organizations.

Grassroots Speaker Series: Black & Pink
Feb 20 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

 

In the midst of today’s hostile political climate, grassroots organizers remind us that the struggles of oppressed people are not new. TSNE MissionWorks, with our long history of the nonprofit capacity building, seeks to use our platform to lift up the voices of grassroots community organizers working on some of our society’s most pressing issues. The series highlights the creativity, resourcefulness, and resilience of local community organizers. Our speakers will share how their lived experiences shape their organizing and the difficulties they face leading grassroots organizations. Our speakers will explain how audience members can get involved in supporting their work, and may include a facilitated action step during their talks. We hope that attendees will leave with ideas about how to continue to support these important organizations and causes in their own lives—as nonprofit workers, funders, students, or community members.
