While minor issues and challenges occur regularly in pro bono collaborations, major breakdowns are less frequent but can have devastating effects for clients, organizations, and pro bono partners. This session will explore what happens when such a breakdown occurs and how to recover when disaster strikes. Through a facilitated discussion and case studies, participants will leave with concrete strategies for managing pro bono crises when they happen.
