Jeg tænker på den skade, det kunne forårsage organisationens kunder, hvis de skulle se dette bestyrelsesmedlems indlæg. Hvordan kunne de stole på at denne organisation har deres bedste interesser på sinde? Jeg forstår ikke engang, hvorfor denne person er i bestyrelsen, hvis de tænker på denne måde. Jeg er bekymret for sabotage.

Comment: Why do you feel it’s unprofessional to raise this matter when the things that are happening sound antithetical to the field and mission of the organization? The behavior has just lost them a board member and has likely alienated a lot of people – and your name was affiliated with that group. My instinct is that it’s better to get in front of it and call it out now rather than waiting to run into someone in person – that may not ever happen, and then it slips into complacency. Only you know the nuances of the situation though, so what does your gut say?
Comment: This sounds like a whistleblower’s dilemma and an issue of unsafe workplaces. I see lots of ideas from others in this post (tell or don’t tell) and there is never a right answer for all. Here are some things to consider. As a part of their community you are assuming some values by association, but you need to be in a place that supports you fulfilling yours. If it’s a safe workplace they will allow you to express your values, while respecting the difference. So, is it you being scared or them being predatory? There is clearly a boundary issue somewhere here but it’s unclear what it is. It’s VERY common for people to say, “I can’t say the thing because someone else will feel bad or will make my life difficult.” That’s the the crux of an unsafe environment. (See podcast Worklife with Adam Grant if you want more s4 ep14 on whether it’s safe to speak up). A therapist should be able to talk you through this if they are qualified for the task. As for whistleblowing, if it is unsafe to leave without retribution, there is a reason whistleblowers lawyer-up when they go. Either find protection or leave quietly for your own safety. There is no shame in real victims crawling out of a back window and running like hell. The hard part is figuring out if you are a real victim because of a predator or whether you are scared of consequences that don’t exist. I’ve worked with people who thought their partners were psychopathic and feared for their lives only to find out they were loving a kind people who had different values. The hard part is that real predators exist and it’s important to sort out which is which. Lots to think about, but I feel some of your pain because I just left a job under similar circumstances. I left for several reasons, one were them and some were me, and I offered to discuss but was not taken up on the offer, which meant to me that they were not ready to address their own stuff. Good conflict resolvers accept responsibility for their own behavior, bad ones blame. That goes for both employees and employers.
