Get #social not #sued – Social Media and the Law Webinar
Tuesday 10 March - 12.45-2.00pm
Social media can help not-for-profit organisations expand their reach and grow awareness for their cause, but it also has the potential to cause damage to the organisation, its clients, employees or volunteers.
Sign up today for this webinar and we’ll step you through the key legal risks when not-for-profit organisations publish content on social media, including: privacy, confidentiality, intellectual property and defamation. More information and booking.
Screening Checks Webinar
Tuesday 24 March - 12.45-2.00pm
Thorough and systematic screening for employees and volunteers is a crucial part of not only compliance with the law and good governance, but running a successful and safe organisation – protecting all those involved with your service: staff, volunteers, clients and members of the public.
Are you involved in recruitment and management of staff and volunteers in your community organisation? Do you want to make sure you are implementing an effective and legally compliant screening program? Do you want to be up to date with the laws and processes around Working with Children Checks and Police Checks? If so, this webinar is for you! More information and booking.
Blowing the whistle - how whistleblowing laws apply to your not-for-profit
Tuesday 28 April - 12.45-2.00pm
Whistleblowers play an important part in bringing to light misconduct that harms not only our non-profit organisations but our society as a whole. It is important that your organisation has proper processes in place in order to encourage whistleblowers to come forward (and to protect them when they do).
In this 75 minute webinar, Justice Connect will be joined by James Daniel from Allens to discuss all things whistleblowing. The webinar will cover how whistleblowing laws apply to your organisation and what your not-for-profit can do to ensure it has a compliant whistleblowing policy. More information and booking

Data Governance Webinar
Data, we all have it, we all use it, but how do we govern it?
Strong data governance presents real opportunities for community organisations. Responsible collection, storage, management and use of data can enable organisations to innovate, improve processes and gain a competitive edge. It is also an internal ‘insurance policy’ to protect an organisation and its key stakeholders.
In this 75 minute webinar, Justice Connect will be joined by a key member of Clyde & Co’s leading cyber and data privacy team to discuss all things data governance, in particular how your organisation can make sure it has strong data governance practices in place. Access the webinar here.

Here's what past participants have to say about our webinars
“This was the first webinar I have participated in and I couldn't believe how easy and useful it was. A lot of the time I can’t attend training due to location, time and the fact we are a small not-for-profit. I found this really easy and was quite impressed. I will be opting for more webinars in the future as it saves time by not having to travel and I can do it without leaving my office."
“I thought the range of content covered was really good and the questions that were asked were answered really well.”
“Very practical guidance and lots of access to resources and links etc to help in the future!”
“Webinars make it a lot more convenient and I would definitely recommend others to attend your webinars.”
“Really clear, concise and accessible information. Thank you!”
