How Brands are Creating LGBT Communication Strategies
L. Michelle Smith, U.S. Diversity, Corporate Communications, will discuss how brands are developing next-step LGBT marketing strategies. As support for – and acceptance of – the LGBT community continues to grow in the U.S., brands are more often including it in mainstream marketing programs. Michelle will share how AT&T turned around its net promoter score with the LGBT community. She’ll share a case study and talk about how AT&T recently launched a social media campaign to celebrate LGBT History Month through October by asking consumers to check in at locations that have empowered the community using the hashtag #MakingYourMark.
