What we’re listening to: “What’s The Strategy? Corporate Activism And Anti-Trans Bills” on the It’s Been a Minute with Sam Sanders podcast

Why we’re listening: Sam Sanders and Dahlia Lithwick discuss how attempted corporate activism unaligned with consistent plans are just performative virtue-signaling. Ideascape was founded on the premise that executing a successful DEI agenda is a multi-year process– not a series of disjointed, short-term reactions. What we see from quick fixes are inevitable moments of reconciliation, where immediate action to show solidarity, solve diversity pain points, and respond to social injustices come into conflict with a lack of supporting infrastructure.

An ideascape membership helps you structure your long-term strategy to drive universal understanding of how your reactions to external events fit into your wider DEI narrative. Talk to Jonathan Dyke and Deon Gaines for the details.

Stand-out quote: “I just think if these corporate bans can focus attention and can allow us to have a meaningful conversation…that’s useful, and I’m for that. But I just don’t think we should have illusions that there’s a beating heart of gold under coca-cola.com, corporation, incorporated, trademark.”
