Sustainability Marketing: What's Not Working?

Join us for an Aftershow of the Adweek Sustainability + DEI Summit on Wednesday 4/7 at 4:00est (1:00pst) on Clubhouse. The event is co-hosted by the Adweek Executive Mentee group nicknamed "Sustainability Kweens," and "The Sustainability Marketing Guy," @TheRussAvery.

The session will address the opposite end of the spectrum from the past two days, which have focused on best in-class examples: what’s not working and where there’s opportunity for growth & improvement in brands’ sustainability efforts.

Examples of topics that'll be addressed: Accessibility, Cause-inflicting Sustainable Problem-Solving, Lack of Diversity, Consumer Behavior Change, among others.
