Haskayne Hour | Are you on the right side of the cultural moment?

January 24 @ 7:15 am - 8:30 am



In an increasingly partisan and socially connected world, it is no longer enough to stay silently on the sidelines. People are expecting brands to take an active role in cultural, social and political moments. Yet, speaking up and speaking out can be fraught with risks and challenges. What can companies do to respond to these cultural moments as part of their marketing?
