KWT Global is making its special situations/crisis communications team available to provide pro bono communications advice, guidance and content support on a first-come, first-served basis to help nonprofits effectively communicate key health and safety messaging to critical stakeholders in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. The services will address such issues as determining what and when to communicate to key audiences; preparing for media inquiries; sharing information about changing policies and procedures on events, meetings, travel and business continuity operations; and building confidence that the situation is being managed effectively. “Many of these organizations have limited resources and in-house capabilities to manage an unprecedented situation like COVID-19,” said KWT Global CEO Aaron Kwittken.

The Pollack Group remains headquartered in Los Angeles, with offices in New York and 88 partners worldwide through The Worldcom Public Relations Group.
