Dawn of Diversity: What Do We Need to Do to Increase Diversity in PR?

Posted by Mitchell Communications Group on February 5, 2019

Over the past few years, the issue of racial and ethnic minority representation has taken center stage.

They change jobs every five minutes!

They're putting entire industries out of business!

These are just a few of the preconceived notions that seem to dog young consumers today. But by subscribing to stereotypes like these, brands discount an incredibly important segment of our population. Across the globe, there are 1.8 billion Millennials and more than 2 billion members of Generation Z. Combined, they make up a potential $165 billion marketplace.
