AIRS Webinar - Communications During an Organizational Crisis
It’s a phone call I’ll never forget. “This is Ben with Fox News and we want to talk with someone about the image of the topless woman you sent to all 10,455 Utah attorneys.” What would YOU do? What steps can you take to mitigate the damage when a crisis hits your organization? Maybe it’s a criminal accusation. Maybe it’s financial mismanagement. It may be an innocuous comment made by a director or foundation executive. Whatever its form, a crisis will strike your organization at some point. The future of your organization may depend on how you handle it.
