It’s Time to Kill CSR

In our age of heightened ethical awareness, it’s no longer okay to put aside a small budget for “doing good.” Consumers are calling for an increase in morality from politicians, brands, and influencers alike. Corporations have to be a consistent force for change, and use the power that they have to make a real impact. But doing so, comes at a cost. Ready Set Rocket and Intrusive Thoughts will speak to what true brand activism looks like, and how to put other’s needs ahead of business growth.
