🌟 Charity Navigator 🌟

When you’re considering donating to a not-for-profit, how do you investigate their track record for managing their funds? We use Charity Navigator, a research platform that provides lots of data and info on organizations and also enables searching by category if you want to support a cause but don’t have a particular organization in mind. Let’s lend a hand and support them, too: Charity Navigator.

Noteworthy 🖋
Lead with Equity

Lead with Equity’s mission is to help leaders make space for historically marginalized people to drive change in organizations. Managing people can be a difficult task, and they believe inclusive leaders create the most effective teams.

Lead with Equity’s has developed a Leadership Assessment with input from research, clients, and managers, to help leaders analyze their behaviors. Through real-life work scenarios, the Assessment will help managers see how their actions foster inclusion, equity, and diversity in the workplace.

The Assessment is free and confidential and takes about 10-15 minutes to complete. Here’s a link to use to take the Assessment: https://leadwithequity.com/leadership-assessment/. (Be patient, it may load slowly.)

  • So often helping others starts with curiosity. I love this story about hotel soap from Freakonomics.
  • Kelly Main from talks about trading time management for time minimalism. Interesting concept, what do you think?

Okay, that’s it for now. I hope you enjoyed this issue and stay tuned for next week’s coming out on Thursday, March 2.
