The Battle for Transparency in the Non-Profit Sector
Ken Berger, President & Chief Executive Officer, Charity Navigator
There are now countless millions of NGOs throughout the world. Unfortunately the cultural and institutional norm for most remains resistant to transparency. This workshop will explore the reasons for this resistance and why it is so important that NGOs overcome their fear of transparency. Mr. Berger will suggest some specific measures that NGOs should take to transform themselves into transparent and accountable organizations that are role models for others. He will argue that this is a critically important battle for the very soul of the NGO sector.
