Communicating and Marketing to Multicultural America: How to Develop Effective Strategies Around Demographic Shifts

Sponsored by Cox Communications

Join AMA and PRSA Hampton Roads on Wednesday, September 19, 2018, for our Southside speaker luncheon at The Kroc Center Hampton Roads with guest speaker Andrew McCaskill, APR, senior VP of global communications & multicultural marketing for Nielsen in New York. Registration will close on September 12th. Register to sponsor a table for 6 at the AMA/PRSA Hampton Roads member rate, which includes logo placement and recognition at the event.

We will explore data and research pointing to key demographic shifts in the United States – communities of color, millennials, gender/race and sexual orientation. Communicators today must not only be developing communications strategies for inclusive audiences – but rather entire multicultural audiences, with messaging through a new lens. If brands and companies lack a multicultural strategy, then there’s no growth. Our marketplace today is becoming more and more about multicultural consumers, who are driving decisions and carry more buying power.

Three key takeaways

  • To better understand your demographic data and research

  • The multicultural shift is ongoing and ever-changing

  • How to implement inclusive communication strategies
