OUR CLIENTS ARE FEATURED IN
As a technology giant, Twitter has worked hard to lead the industry on diversity and inclusion. In the fall of 2021, the LEPR Agency began a multi-year contract with the company to provide public relations, crisis communications, internal communications and strategic counsel support for the company and each of its minority executives including the Chief Design Officer, the Chief Human Resources Officer, the Vice President of Inclusion and also the Chief Marketing Officer. Through this engagement, the LEPR Agency has managed national and international large-scale media through the changing of Twitter’s CEO from founder Jack Dorsey, reorganization, the announcement of a new CEO and the promotions of various minority leaders gaining C-suite roles. LEPR is also leading national announcements on major reorganizations and promotions of people of color.

The team organized 20 individual product drops of the new Sprite bottles featuring QR Codes with the concert ticket labels to publications including Essence, the Atlanta Journal Constitution, the Source, Bossip, Big Tigger and the Atlanta Business Chronicle while producing nationwide coverage on the upcoming concert series.
