How Brands and Employers Can Support the LGBTQ+ Community

by Mike Doyle| July 6, 2021

Pride 2021 came to a rousing close last week, but the turning of the calendar cannot mean we turn our focus away from the continued education, dialogue and focus on accelerating acceptance for the LGBTQ+ community. It’s critical that we expand beyond each community’s “month” and focus on intersectionality for every race, identity, and ability […]

This week, I have the great honor of becoming CEO of Ketchum—to serve our clients, our people and our connected global community as we charge forward into the next great chapter of our exceptional firm.

If you told the 24, or even 34 year-old version of me that one day I’d be sharing thoughts publicly on what Pride Month means to me I’d have called you crazy. Or worse, back then, misguided. My path to Pride hasn’t been clear or easy, and it’s probably been more private than some. The […]
