It's apt that during this challenging time, this year's IWD campaign theme is "Choose to Challenge." Along with five global marketing leaders, we discussed leading with empathy, operating from a place of fearlessness, celebrating the diverse communities that we serve and challenging stereotypes around female leaders and entrepreneurs.

What’s my definition of branding? Simple: it’s any individual’s experience with any part of an organization...anywhere and anytime. A brand is built (or not) every time a candidate walks into an organization for an interview, every time a customer returns a product to a retail store, or every time someone browses an offering on a website or digital device. A brand is what happens to you when you touch a company. Strongly branded organizations align those experiences to reinforce the brand promises they make in marketing. And that’s a job that never, ever ends.

Fans should not be surprised that the Cleveland Indians are undergoing a name change — the writing’s been on the wall for years. For several seasons now, Indigenous people and allies have protested the team each Opening Day demanding change. The Indians front office have signaled that they have been listening and took the first step a couple years ago retiring their undeniably racist “Chief Wahoo” logo in 2018.
