ANA LGBTQ+ MARKETING INCLUSION REPORT TAKEAWAYS

Joining Pride Month celebrations was an early stop in the brand purpose journey, however, among the LGBTQ+ community, there are increased concerns about rainbow-washing and the decreased representation of LGBTQ+ in media/advertising. In this session, we will share the results of the first ANA LGBTQ+ Marketing Inclusion Survey, which looked at the inclusion of LGBTQ+ in marketing activities, as well as support for the LGBTQ+ Community among ANA member companies. We will also identify best practices and how we can better support LGBTQ+ in advertising and in the workplace.

J&J CARE WITH PRIDE: BEYOND THE USUAL SUSPECTS

As more brands seek to engage with LGBTQ+ consumers, many are leveraging the same LGBTQ+ themes, time periods, nonprofits, celebrities, media, and activation channels primarily because this is where the cultural competency of many advertisers and agencies begins and ends. Contrast that with the Johnson & Johnson Consumer Health CARE WITH PRIDE® program.  This +10 year LGBTQ+ initiative, including 12 participating Johnson & Johnson brands, has succeeded with its understanding of queer culture, enabling it to go beyond the usual suspects and engage with LGBTQ+ consumers in unique and unexpected ways: emerging talent, localized partnerships, custom employee engagement, opportunistic micro-grants, and more. Hear from some of the program’s leaders about J&J’s differentiating strategic approach and how it has generated ongoing success for its participating brands.
