While funders tend to think of our organizations as highly ethical, organizationally conservative and unlikely to face public controversy, foundation crises do frequently arise. How often do we read news about situations like these?
It happens. Foundations find themselves in crisis, and it could happen to you. The question is: Will you be ready?
As crisis management expert Davia Temin will show us, a defensive reaction is the wrong place for a foundation to start.
This is an area in which foundations absolutely should act more like businesses – by developing potential scenarios and developing a reality-based crisis simulation to prepare their organization. In this highly-interactive, hands-on program, Temin will help Philanthropy New York members begin to do just that.

Temin is founder and CEO of Temin and Company, which advises global companies, their boards, CEOs and leadership teams on reputation and crisis management, marketing and media strategy, leadership communications, and thought leadership. She is also First Vice Chair of the Board of Girl Scouts of the USA, Chair of the Board of Video Volunteers, and serves on the advisory boards of the Knight-Bagehot Fellowship at Columbia Journalism School and ProPublica, and on Harvard Kennedy School's Women's Leadership Board.
In 2010, Temin developed a "Crisis Game," which CEOs of dozens of companies have used. Based on the interactive seminars on media and society created by Fred Friendly – with whom Temin worked – the experience entails walking through a five-act "case." The game is designed to stress test each CEO in a crisis, and to allow him or her to see how others react in the same situation. Participants from the group are assigned roles and play their parts as Ms. Temin reveals the growing crisis, act by act. The audience, too, will be brought into the role-play, until all are involved, and their assumptions of how they would act under a particular set of crisis circumstances are tested. Temin is developing a case specifically for foundation professionals.
