NYSHealth Webinar: “Practically Speaking: Communicating Effectively
in the COVID-19 Era”
This session will highlight ways that nonprofits and foundations can communicate more effectively during the crisis.
As COVID-19 swept across the United States, it became increasingly challenging for organizations to connect with audiences who were inundated with information about the pandemic. Messages from scientists and public health experts were often confusing and inconsistent, changing as new information emerged about the virus. And in the midst of the pandemic, the nation began reckoning in new ways with deeply entrenched, systemic racism. For nonprofits and foundations, this new landscape surfaced high-level strategic communications issues like how to align messages with organizational values, as well as tactical challenges like how to move an annual conference online.
