Diversity and Influencer Marketing


The Black Lives Matter movement has sparked many important conversations. Specifically, for brands, it has brought up dialogues surrounding inclusivity and diversity, and, how we as marketers can do better.

It has been reported by many that the influencer marketing industry marketing has a problem with diversity, and though many brands will promote inclusivity these notions are not always represented in campaigns and through partnerships. It can be hard to understand the importance of diversity if everyone in your organization looks similar. But, diversity in marketing is not always for you, it’s for your customers. Having marketing campaigns where models have one specific look sends an exclusive message, It inadvertently says. “Our brand is only for people who look like this”. While diverse marketing efforts imply, “our brand is for everyone.”

Many of these public statements were statements from CEOs, stating that an intentional effort and commitment to diversity.
