Share this page
1:00pm-2:00pm EST

For community disability providers, the COVID-19 pandemic is wrought with risk that includes, but is far from limited to, the public health challenges confronting the people you support and employ. In times of crisis, when expectations are high and patience is low, it’s critical that you have a plan for transparent, timely communications across a range of scenarios that were nearly impossible to imagine just a few months ago.

In this webinar, the first installment of a three-part series, presenters will offer a framework for assessing risk and designing a crisis communications plan that is ready to execute the minute the unthinkable becomes reality. With these frameworks as the backdrop, presenters will walk through key decision points in situations that many providers are already experiencing and that may be just around the corner for your organization.
