I. AMERICAN EXPRESS ENGAGES EMPLOYEE DIVERSITY NETWORKS TO DRIVE GROWTH (9:45-10:35AM)
Last summer American Express launched Shop Small Provincetown, a pilot initiative created by its LGBT employee network to help the company better connect with multicultural market segments in authentic ways. The program leveraged a combination of established assets and new digital capabilities from across the company to engage consumers, excite merchants and ultimately drive brand relevance. Following strong performance in several areas including revenue, mobile syncs and total transaction volume, the pilot is being explored by the company's Hispanic and African American networks. Learn how you can build the business case for multicultural outreach, generate senior leadership buy-in and ultimately tap your company's own human capital to deliver relevant and resonant multicultural campaigns.
