Indeed – Global Pride Engagement and Parade Activations

The Brief:
Deliver a high quality, cohesive programme of Pride themed events and activations to Indeed employees across Europe, Asia, The US and Canada which would engage employees and align with the values of Indeed.

Category: Employee Engagement

Pride is designed to tell the real story of people’s journeys to their true selves. It’s not just a march or a float– it’s designed to make an emotional and genuine connection. We accomplished this through internal activations, video stories, a compilation video, parades with a bicycle powered Indeed float at each location, festivals, and social media outreach. We designed a programme that could be replicated across multiple sites and within budget.
We took a grassroots approach and paid homage to the hard work it has taken to make the world more inclusive – beginning with the 1970’s and infusing it with the progress made to the 21st century.
Our goal was to highlight the Indeed ESG mission, which meant that we were mindful of the environment and used organic, recyclable, sustainable, biodegradable, repurposed materials wherever possible.

The Arts Council of Ireland – Places Matter Conference

The Brief:
Deliver a world class, in-person conference using both existing and temporary structures which are environmentally conscious and accessible.

Category: Conference Management

The two day conference was a hybrid model with in person attendees and a series of online sessions and live streaming to accommodate a remote audience or speaker. We reviewed the accessibility obstacles potential attendees could experience and problem solved how to remove or reduce them. Those with any access requirements, such as the need for Wheelchair access, an ISL Interpreter, Induction Loop System were all catered for. As the goal was for the Arts Council to have a green conference, we implemented strategies such as digital programmes, re-using lanyards, and local suppliers. The programme and site layout also factored in complementing the visual art exhibitions throughout the sites.
