Vu from Nonprofit AF (NAF) urges us to consider just how ingrained a culture of drinking is in society and the nonprofit sector:
"Our galas and other events are often saturated with booze. Drinking is often core to our hangouts. We joke about drinking all the time. I myself have made numerous jokes about alcohol on this blog, during meetings, and during my keynotes and panels, without stopping to think about how this may affect colleagues."
The article provides tips on how to be more thoughtful in this area; to name a few: never ask why someone isn't drinking, don't pressure anyone to drink, and have non-alcoholic beverages at your events.
