COVID-19 Vaccines and Your Nonprofit

The COVID-19 vaccination has brought both hope and confusion. The pandemic’s hold on our way of life and work is lessening thanks to effective vaccines. Simultaneously, not everyone can or will choose to get vaccinated, there are variants taking hold in many communities despite the introduction of vaccines, and vaccination rates are uneven across race, age, socio-economic position, and geography.

As nonprofits, how does this complex mixture of progress, uncertainty, and inequity impact safely and inclusively returning to in-person events, service delivery, and working conditions? 

Join a panel of experts who will bring their lenses of human resources, law, medicine, and public health to bear on this question and more. Topics include:
  • How the vaccine works and protects against COVID-19
  • What are strategies for integrating virus case data into your organization’s contingency planning
  • Navigating spaces in which not all are vaccinated in practical and culturally-sensitive ways
  • What can nonprofits legally require in terms of proof-of-vaccination from employees and clients 

Learning Objectives 

  • Build confidence backed by data in developing re-opening plans for your organization
  • Better understand the nuance behind the vaccination rates 
  • Gain clarity around legal implications of requiring/not requiring proof-of-vaccination and other COVID-19 measures in internal and external settings
  • Gain broader understanding of how aligned organizations are approaching the shift toward re-opening
