Happy New Year! Like many of you, we spent time in December reflecting on our work in 2012. As our third-year anniversary approaches in February, we’re thinking deeply about why we are engaged in this work and how we can continue to do it better.
As a creative communications company, we are committed to helping our clients promote equity and diversity because we believe it matters. Racial and cultural demographics in the United States are shifting. We’re grappling more and more with what it means to live in a diverse society and ensure that the doors of opportunity are open to all. A look at the top news headlines of 2012 indicates that issues related to diversity and equity are just as important as they have ever been. Last year in our “Hot Topics” section, we covered political thoughts on The Dream Act and their impact on the presidential election, higher education affirmative action, and the so-called “mommy wars” that brought the role of women and work into the political limelight. And let us not overlook the fact that diversity was the most talked about issue to come out of the results of “Election 2012.”
Our country is in a constant push-pull to align our democratic values with the day-to-day experiences that leave many cultural communities feeling left out of the American dream. However, we know from our client partnerships, many organizations are working hard to ensure everyone has access to the tools needed to become successful in life. They encourage us to keep doing what we do.
Over the next year, we will put even more energy into expanding our efforts such as offering a new blog on our website, providing a more interactive portal for our community to have meaningful discussions, and much more. We look forward to what is ahead for TTG+Partners, our clients, and you who we value as part of our community. And do let us hear your voice (via firstname.lastname@example.org) as the year goes on. Our work is made stronger by your input.
