In this presentation, Maurice Cooper, senior vice president of marketing at Target, will share examples of how Target is advancing its multicultural and DE&I commitments to drive growth and deliver positive change for our team members, guests and communities. He’ll also share key learnings and insights from his journey to create a better marketing ecosystem … and a better world.

With a renewed focus on its core audience, Pine-Sol wanted to take a step back and reexamine its marketing strategy, putting Black women front and center. This meant not only understanding the values and needs of these women, but the role Pine-Sol plays in their lives. Hear how Pine-Sol showed up for Black women, a community who has shown love for the brand for decades, in an authentic and meaningful way in this 2021 Multicultural Excellence Award winning campaign.
