Ep. 32: An Impactful Way Every Leader Can Honor Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Legacy Today and Every Day

Welcome to Inclusion and Marketing, the show that’s all about helping you win the attention, adoration, and loyalty of more consumers, especially those with differences that are often ignored by brands. I’m your host, Sonia Thompson, a marketer and someone with a lot of differences. Let’s get to it. 

As we arrive at 40 years of celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr.’s life and work as an official holiday, many will revisit some of Dr. King’s most famous speeches, and reflect on how far we’ve come. Others will dedicate their time engaging in acts of service.

If you are looking for additional ways you and your team can honor Dr. King and his legacy, consider going beyond just taking a pause on a day meant to commemorate him and his message. Honor him by focusing on continuing the work he started, but wasn’t able to finish. This episode covers how.

And wouldn’t it be great if there were more people practicing inclusion and making more people feel like they belong? I think so. Also, I want to hear from you. If you have a question, comment on this episode, a previous episode, or in general, or if you would just wanna say hi, I like those kinds of messages too.
