2021 Edelman Trust Barometer

the 2021 Edelman Trust Barometer reveals an epidemic of misinformation and widespread mistrust of societal institutions and leaders around the world.

Hybrid rules: The emerging playbook for flexible work

A year into the global pandemic, there is near universal agreement that flexible working models—accommodating different locations and schedules—have proven to be better and more productive than most would have imagined possible.

DELOITTE: The equity imperative The need for business to take bold action now

The equity imperative was created with the goal of inspiring better understanding, deeper insight, and more meaningful action now toward greater racial equity. It is composed of three linked sections that acknowledge the legacy and realities of racism in the United States, imagine various potential futures for racial equity in the United States over the next decade and beyond, and suggest specific steps leaders can take to promote more equitable outcomes, both in their organizations and more broadly. Each section can be read separately, but they are intended to work together to build the case for urgency and new action.

Marketers, It’s Time To Engage Asian American Consumers
