Video of the day: Should Brands Lead on DEI Issues?
This is one of today's most pressing topics. We see some brands 'take a stand', like the Samsung LGBTQIA+ ad in Singapore, then pull it when the ad faces 'backlash'. This can cause untold harm. When should a brand be an 'ally'? When should it move to become an 'activist'? And what is the brand's real appetite for 'risk'? How can we work with brands to make sure we produce work that is authentic, meaningful and drives work with social impact and is not performative.
