Fans who tuned into the 2015 Super Bowl probably think twice before using the phrase “like a girl” to negatively describe someone’s ability.

More people are helping women be #FreeToWalk away from financial abuses after learning the story behind “the world’s largest prison break.”

These campaigns for P&G Always and Allstate Foundation Purple Purse supported their corporate social responsibility efforts, helping them to stand out, address a social problem, and build goodwill among consumers and others. And, both were led by Leo Burnett/MSLGROUP Chicago.

Join us on Tues., Nov. 15, as Amy Cheronis and Lynsey Elve of MSLGROUP Chicago share insights on how to take an attention-getting approach to corporate social responsibility that breaks through the noise to get people talking and taking action. During the discussion, Amy and Lynsey will share a variety of best practice case studies – including the stories behind P&G Always #LikeAGirl and Allstate Foundation Purple Purse #FreeToWalk.

Earlier this year, MSLGROUP in Chicago and Leo Burnett’s Reputation & Communications Practice joined forces to create one integrated public relations offering housed under the MSLGROUP brand – and based in the Leo Burnett Building.
