What does good leadership in crisis look like? In this time of unprecedented challenge related to COVID19, what can we learn from the great leaders of the past?

This free webinar is designed to explore these questions with a particular focus on the challenges facing those in philanthropy and nonprofits.

Nancy F. Koehn is the author of Forged in Crisis: The Power of Courageous Leadership in Turbulent Times and a business historian at Harvard Business School in Boston, Massachusetts, where she is the James E. Robison Professor of Business Administration.

Join her and CEP President Phil Buchanan, author of Giving Done Right: Effective Philanthropy and Making Every Dollar Count, for this virtual fireside chat. CEP Vice President for Programming and External Relations Grace Nicolette will host the webinar and offer welcoming remarks.
