About the Conference

March 21–22, 2023 | Virtual




The finding from Havas Media Group's 2021 Meaningful Brands report is both shocking and distressing: 75 percent of brands could disappear and consumers wouldn't care, or would easily find a replacement. This, despite the work of organizations to connect with consumers throughout their day.

How the world has changed. While consumers still value fair pricing, quality products, proactive service, and other basics of business, their expectations of brands are higher than ever. This is reflected in countless studies that show consumers want brands to act on social and political issues, to act for the good of society and the planet, and (like nonprofit organizations) to place purpose at the heart of all they do rather than focus solely on quarterly metrics. Unfortunately, the same Havas study found that 71 percent of consumers don't believe brands will deliver on their societal promises — which may be why they deem those brands so replaceable.

All conference registrants will be entered into a drawing for one of six 2023 annual passes to all U.S. National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands.

In the face of this consumer cynicism, how do marketers demonstrate what their brands are doing for the betterment of humanity to deepen brand love and loyalty? What can the industry learn from the mission-led nonprofit sector about doing good in an authentic, intentional, and results-oriented way for their donors? Which case studies will showcase the path forward for brands and organizations seeking to be a force for good?

ANA Brands for Humanity Coalition

At this inaugural two-day virtual conference, presented by the ANA Brands for Humanity Coalition, learn how today's "forces for good" — both brands and nonprofit organizations — are using their voices and influence to establish real impact and consequential change. Hear from a wide range of thought leaders on topics including purposeful and ethical marketing; gender equality; social responsibility and environmental sustainability; advancing charitable missions; diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging; and protecting online communities.

You will come away with new ideas, actionable insights, and best practices for making a world of difference for the people we serve and the planet we love. Learn how to genuinely connect through the humanity lens and retain your most cynical consumer.
