#127: Overcoming Race & Gender Issues in Marketing

To create an emotional connection with your desired audience is the definition of branding. To take it a step further, brand activism is branding with the goal making an impact on social, economic, or environmental issues. In the year 2020, in the wake of George Floyd’s tragic death, and protests throughout the nation demanding equality – we have to ask the hard questions. How can I help?

Race and gender qualifications are not separate and we must discuss these unspoken barriers. Kubi Springer is an award-winning international Brand Consultant and Trainer with over 24 years of experience in brand marketing. Her best selling book, I Am My Brand is a testament to the power of being a woman and illustrates what it takes to be a powerful female brand in today’s male dominated business world.

Tune into this very special episode in which Kyle and Kubi have the tough conversations and discuss tangible action steps to not only build your brand, but how we can align our marketing with our values.
