During this videotaped roundtable discussion, you will hear about:

  • The evolution of cultural identity, 
  • How brands can adjust mindfully regarding multicultural consumers,
  • How to use research to think about product portfolios, communication, and representation.

When: Thursday, July 25, 2019 12:30 PM CST. Registration Link: Jorge Martinez, Vice President, CultureBeat and, 312-828-9200.
