Project Details

What We Need
  • Audit of existing Employee Handbook, or internal communications regarding employment policies
  • Edit or creation of a new Employee Handbook, which may include any of the following: Standards of Conduct, Work Schedules, Leave Policies, Termination Policies, Safety and Security, Anti-Discrimination policies, Compensation and Benefits policies, any Non-Disclosure Agreements or Conflict of Interest statements that may apply, and any other pertinent information
Additional Details

Experience with small nonprofit organizations (we have 3 paid employees) and knowledge of designing policies to specifically bolster inclusive workplace culture is important.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a standard employment letter, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have policies for PTO, Whistleblower, Conflict of Interest, etc., and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $2,430 , allowing us to devote these resources to further improving DEI policies and practices in our organization.

It will support our new executive director and current staff as we continue to develop and codify a fair and inclusive workplace culture, providing a solid foundation upon which to expand our small team once we return to hiring after the pandemic subsides.

Our Mission

SouthWings protects and restores the ecosystems of the Southeastern US through flight. Founded in 1996, SouthWings volunteer pilots fly to uncover and mitigate environmental challenges related to climate change and watershed protection. We welcome a broad range of stakeholders to see firsthand the scope and scale of issues such as sea level rise, water pollution, community vulnerability, deforestation, and mountaintop removal coal mining. Our flights shape perspectives on the actions needed to stop and reverse these problems. We fly to hold polluters accountable and to promote environmental policy and planning, scientific research, public awareness and action, and ecosystem protection.
