"Power Tools" Webinars

The United States Breastfeeding Committee hosts this series of bi-monthly webinars as part of its training, technical assistance, and capacity building support for USBC's network of breastfeeding coalition, national organizations, and community-based organizations across the United States. Webinars are held every two months (in odd-numbered months) on the third Wednesday of the month from 2:00-3:30 p.m. ET. 

Access Info

Access to these webinars is open to all interested breastfeeding coalition members, as well as others involved in forming or leading nonprofit organizations in the breastfeeding field. Topic/speaker details are posted 1-2 weeks before each session on this page and in the Coalitions Learning Connection. The recordings and presentation materials from all past sessions are archived below.

Register for the webinar series

NOTE: To streamline access, these webinars are set up in GotoWebinar as a series. You only need to register for the series once, and you will then receive auto-reminders of each session with the topic/speaker details. Even though you may not be able to attend every webinar session live, the series registration will still send you auto-reminders so that you have easy updates on the topic and links to the live webinar and archives.

Ethical Leadership: What does this mean for my organization?

Presented by:

Lisa Akers, PhD, RDN, IBCLC, RLC, FAND, Program Chair, Union Institute, and University

with Jeanne Blankenship, MS, RDN, Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and 

Sabeen Adil, MD, IBCLC, International Lactation Consultant Association (ILCA)

Ethics is not often perceived as a “fun” topic of discussion, but it is such an important aspect of all organizations.  In fact, effective ethical leadership cultivates an ethical climate that is fully transparent and free from conflicts of interest.  Therefore, it is imperative to lay a solid ethical foundation for your organization to flourish.  In this presentation, participants will gain a better understanding of how the topic of ethics plays into various organizational types.  Participants will come away being able to differentiate between and among nonprofit laws and duties and how each of these effects the ethics of their organization. To bring the topic of ethical leadership to life, participants will experience authentic organizational case studies as presented by organizations outside of USBC.
