Marketing to a Multicultural Consumer

  • Alexis Kerr, Vice President, Mahogany Brand, Hallmark
  • Alexis will bring her expertise to bear as members of the GCA reimagine customer/buyer engagement, industry trends, and branding through a lens of equity, multicultural engagement and inclusion. We are living and building businesses in the connection economy. We are also in a season of business where consumers are looking for representation and belonging as it pertains to the brands they patron, recommend, and in consumer spending overall. Alexis will share how she sees the future of work and business being tied to companies and brands that intentionally curate deep, meaningful, and authentic trust relationships with multicultural consumers and brands. How is supplier diversity critical in today's landscape? Why will those who are slow adopters in this space run the risk of becoming irrelevant and potentially obsolete.
