In the summer of 2020, the AFP worked with researchers from the Ohio State University (OSU) to conduct a survey on the fundraising workplace climate. A random sample of AFP members were asked to share their views about their work and work environment to represent those of the broader AFP membership and fundraising profession. Starting in February 2021, the AFP began to release short reports on preliminary results from the survey. In this short webinar, OSU researchers Drs. Erynn Beaton and Megan LePere-Schloop highlight some of the most important findings on discrimination and harassment in fundraising from the reports.
Drs. Erynn Beaton and Megan LePere-Schloop are Assistant Professors in the John Glenn College of Public Affairs at The Ohio State University. They conduct research and teach on public and nonprofit management. Beaton earned her Ph.D. at the University of Massachusetts Boston in the business school’s program on Organizations & Social Change.
LePere-Schloop earned her Ph.D. from the Department of Public Administration and Policy at the University of Georgia. Their work on sexual harassment in fundraising has been published in two of the top public administration journals and has produced multiple reports published in collaboration with the AFP.
