Scale Collaborative and theDock exists to work with and support social, arts and cultural organizations that contribute greatly to the fabric and support systems of our communities. These are uncertain times that have implications on employees, beneficiaries and clients, and financial outlook. Organizations can take steps to understand the challenge and think through a strategy and response specific to your situation and needs.

On March 17 we hosted a webinar for senior leadership of non profits and community organizations. Kimberly Nemrava, 30+ years with the Canadian Red Cross planning and responding to disasters, walked through the best practices, considerations and strategic planning organizations can take in response to COVID 19. You can watch a recording of the webinar below:

Please note: This webinar is NOT an update or informational session on COVID 19 itself, but is focused on how organizations can prepare, plan, mitigate and communicate effectively about your organizational response to the current situation.
