Once again, we’re witnessing cities and states shift gears in response to the pandemic, stirring up more feelings of uncertainty. In the hope of balancing that, we’re sharing a curated selection of thoughts about leadership, strategy and the economic opportunity behind the COVID-19 mask.

Corporate social responsibility has become a critical element in marketing and public relations plans, particularly during times of social strife. Cue COVID-19, Black Lives Matter and LGBTQ rights. Businesses, brands and celebrities have pivoted to focus on social responsibility and have been communicating their actions through advertising, social media and PR. While consumers have long memories, keeping up with which brand has done what – or nothing at all – and the outcomes get lost in the noise of communications. Did They Help? is a website that documents how brands and celebrities have been reacting to recent social issues and helps consumers track what’s being said and done, and by whom.
Just when you think some sense of normalcy is on the horizon, the world proves you wrong. As we ride the roller coaster, one of the best things we can do for ourselves and others — besides wearing a mask — is to keep learning. I hope you find this week’s marketing, advertising and public relations information insightful.
