Employees Embrace Activism Hours for Greater Good

Balancing social activism with unrelated full-time work has always been challenging. Rallies don’t only occur after business hours and commentary must come within hours of an event, not days. Those driven to make the world a better place make hard choices about working in activism around work hours, not to mention the worry that it may have a negative impact if the boss is unsupportive.

What is Your COVID-19 Brand Story?

The question might be gauche, were it not for the fact that all of us have a coronavirus story, just as those who remember 9/11, Pearl Harbor, and the Great Depression have stories about living through those historical events. Our audiences gain insights, and form opinions, by what we choose to show and tell. Years from now, our collective stories will likely include stay-at-home orders, face masks, and toilet paper shortages, and perhaps the background noise of partisan divisiveness and the angst of economic recession. Individually, we’ll expose how these times shaped us, challenged us to do things differently, and hopefully compelled us to do better.
