The Importance of Inclusivity Within the Influencer Industry Beyond Pride Month (Talking Influence)
More brands than ever celebrated Pride this month, with many doing so for the first time. Each year, the marketing industry becomes more inclusive, as brands seek out opportunities to work with LGBTQIA+ influencers. Many consumers are eager for this change, as 61% agree that diversity is important, and 38% say that they’re more likely to trust companies with diverse images in advertising. Showing a true commitment to inclusion begins at the end of the month, when many brands tuck their rainbows away until next year. Go beyond June and celebrate Pride year-round by uplifting influencers from the LGBTQIA+ community, and making the influencer marketing industry more inclusive every day.
