Supreme Court says gay, transgender workers are protected by federal law forbidding discrimination on the basis of sex

An exciting win –– we'll take it!!

“This is a huge victory for LGBTQ equality,” said James Esseks of the American Civil Liberties Union. He added: “The Supreme Court’s clarification that it’s unlawful to fire people because they’re LGBTQ is the result of decades of advocates fighting for our rights. The court has caught up to the majority of our country, which already knows that discriminating against LGBTQ people is both unfair and against the law.”

The ruling said Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits discrimination “because of sex,” includes LGBTQ employees.

Trump’s Restaurant Panel Is a Disgrace

"When we are let out of our homes and we can survey our new reality, New York’s restaurant business may be unrecognizable. What role will Keller’s and Vongerichten’s and Boulud’s restaurants play in this landscape? How much will they matter to us? About as little, I suspect, as we matter to them." –– Max Falkowitz for Grub Street

Influencers’ currency has increased during Covid-19 crisis

We loved digging into the fascinating Vogue Business article about shifts in influencer engagement and strategy in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Some wisdom from our savvy client, Pura Vida Bracelets:

"Pura Vida approaches influencer-related initiatives through the lens of content creation rather than direct response, which is part of a shifted marketing strategy that began about a month before the coronavirus outbreak. 'We wanted to find another way to market and build brand awareness outside of social media advertisements,' says Pura Vida’s co-founder Griffin Thall. As part of these content-oriented efforts, Pura Vida took 20 to 30 influencer partners on trips around the world for the sole purpose of gathering social media material, an approach that accounted for 1 per cent of Pura Vida’s total annual marketing budget. Now that international travel has ground to a halt in recent weeks, the brand has stockpiled content from trips taken early in 2020 to get them through spring and summer."

Brands, finding themselves at risk of tone deafness in marketing, are turning to influencer partnerships to talk to customers.
