Amplifying the Voice of the Black Consumer, Part 3: How Brands Can Help Eliminate Racial Inequality

The journey towards change can be steep and difficult. From the devastating effects of the pandemic to the blatant examples of police brutality and systemic racism we watched play out from our homes, we were all transformed by what we saw. And, for many of us, those events brought to light a truth that was hard to grapple with…What America is today is different than the America we want to be. We left 2020 with hope for a plan to eradicate the virus and an expectation for dramatic change in racial inequality in this country.

As a company doing business in 2020, we at C+R Research believe it is critical to both understand and relate to consumers of all backgrounds and identities. C+R also believes that it is doubly critical for consumer-facing brands to do so and that it’s our job is to help! To that end, we recently hosted another live consumer panel in our ongoing Consumer Connection Series: Connecting with Hispanic Consumers to Amplify Their Voices. 

Meet The Hispanic Consumer

To kick off Hispanic Heritage Month, we will talk about the state of the Hispanic consumer and have a conversation with them to explore their sentiments about the current situation in our nation, their perceptions of the importance of Hispanics as consumers, and their views on the brands they connect with.
