MWW HAS LONG BELIEVED THAT

INCLUSION LEADS TO MORE INNOVATION

As part of our ongoing commitment to diversity, equality, and inclusion (DE&I), we launched our pro bono initiative in support of small businesses owned by underrepresented founders and entrepreneurs.

In its pilot year, our team invested more than $200,000 to support the growth of Black women-owned companies, including PUR Home, Yubi Beauty, and R3 Score.

We’re excited to kick off the second year of the program and have opened our new 2021-2022 application.

Eligible organizations must be led by people of color, women, or members of the LGBTQ community, and have an annual revenue of less than $5 million. If this sounds like your company, please submit your application in the form below by September 17, 2021. Selected applicants will be notified by October 15, 2021.

“Working with the team at MWW was an amazing experience. I had never worked with a PR team before. The team was extremely helpful in giving me tools to work with media, they stretched me in areas of thought leadership, and secured great media opportunities to share the brand story of PUR HOME. It was an overall great and helpful experience!”

– Angela Richardson, CEO PUR Home
