  • The Voice of the Climate Generation: Understanding Gen Z and Climate Comms

    September 16, 2021

    When it comes to ‘issues we care about’, the climate crisis is a uniquely oppressive force on a young person’s mind. Not because it threatens every society’s way of life. Not because it requires systemic changes to the way we eat, move and make things on a scale never seen before. And not even because we are aware that simply by going about our daily lives, we are contributing to the problem. It’s because we’re...

  • Toward tangible change: the power of campaigning for modern sports activists

    August 26, 2021

    “Everything,” as the German novelist Thomas Mann observed, “is politics”. Sport in particular, with its enormous appeal across borders, cultures and classes, combined with the truly global reach of its showpiece events, is a very effective and oft-deployed diplomatic tool. As an industry or career, it is also intensely meritocratic. More than almost any other, its professionals have tended to be promoted and revered on account of their ability – rather than their race, class...

  • The role of a joint agency-client charter in mental wellbeing

    August 10, 2021

    Mental health and the PR industry The numbers in the PRCA’s mental wellbeing report in October 2020 made for grim reading: nine out of ten PR professionals reported struggling with their mental health. With little improvement from the previous year, the report also showed that few were willing to take time off to reset, citing work pressures and poor work-life balance. And, while more PR professionals were willing to talk about their mental health than...

  • The future of brand authenticity — leadership, inclusivity and activism

    August 2, 2021

    Nicole Harris, research manager, TRUE Global Intelligence After the hot mess that was 2020, it’s no surprise that social responsibility is now a more important aspect of brand identity than ever before. In fact, a business’s impact on societal outcomes now accounts for almost one-third of informed consumers’ expectations, according to FleishmanHillard’s latest Authenticity Gap study.
