This course has proven invaluable to the charity organizations in my network. While volunteers are almost universally civic-minded people, having some of the finer points spelled out has proven eye-opening. I also like how the focus was not just on compliance, but also on how Diversity & Inclusion is beneficial to charitable organizations as a whole.
