Nebo’s Blog Rewind: 2020 Edition

At the end of every year at Nebo, we wrap things up with a recap of our top blog posts. But this year’s recap is, as they say, “a little different.” This year’s rewind shows us more than just a list of our top posts — it’s a snapshot of 2020.

In just twelve months, we’ve seen both incredible progress and unthinkable loss. We’ve experienced kindness, uncertainty and Netflix on levels we never knew existed. As the old saying goes, it was the best of times, it was the really really worst of times. And we documented it all on the Nebo blog.

From peanut butter sandwiches to historic cultural moments to tips for staying close to coworkers when we’re far apart, check out our top posts of the year. Then, put 2020 where it belongs: in the past.

Brands Taking a Stand: 7 Takeaways from a Candid Conversation about COVID and BLM

This year, the world changed forever--including the world of advertising and marketing. Brands and agencies are being held responsible in ways we never have before. Consumers are demanding that we uphold the interests of the greater good. It started with COVID-19. Then, the killing of George Floyd and the Black Lives Movement raised awareness of how systemic racism impacts our world, and called for us all to play a role in society beyond commerce. 

How have marketers and brands risen to the call? Execs and inclusion and diversity managers from Twitter, Starbucks, Facebook, Brookdale Senior Living, Nebo and Hawkeye Agency gathered this week to answer that question. In a webinar hosted by American Marketing Association Atlanta, Atlanta Interactive Marketing Association and Nebo, these experts discussed the ways in which brands are becoming a force for good, from reimagined hiring processes to tying corporate pay to diversity initiatives.
