Authentic Impact with Kirstyn Nimmo
I'm joined in this episode by award-winning Social Impact Strategist Kirstyn Nimmo.
Kirstyn is the architect behind the White House-recognized #IAmAMan campaign for criminal justice reform, the Purina partnership that opened NYC's first pet-friendly domestic violence shelters, and The Rockefeller Foundation’s maternal mortality #WithoutMom campaign endorsed by Hillary Clinton, Bill Gates, Planned Parenthood, Vox and more. She is committed to driving equity and opportunity among marginalized communities by custom building strategies rooted in authenticity, insight and culture.
In this conversation, Kirstyn reflects on her 12+ years experience building disruptive, culture-shifting campaigns and how that led her to found GOOD WORX - a Social Innovation Consultancy centered around shifting cultural conversation and driving real impact. We cover a variety of really timely topics including how she helps brands better understand their company history and establish or improve their brand purpose architecture, as well as what makes allyship authentic.
