Johnson & Johnson: From The Start
Align and take action on J&J core values surrounding innovation, diversity, and inclusion; position J&J brands as industry leaders in driving conversation and social impact.
Research shows that children begin to identify and experience racial bias between the ages of 0-5 years old; by the age of 12, children’s racial biases are formed.* But in a custom survey, only 40% of Scary Mommy followers indicated having conversations with children about race and bias at this formative stage. BDG identified that these parents sought to incorporate social justice and equality into their value system, but lacked the tools to navigate the challenging conversation with their children.
Scary Mommy and Fatherly partnered with J&J to provide a rich, interactive, and representative program that empowered parents to live their values From the Start. We teamed up with experts and facilitated important conversations between parents and children about urgent topics regarding race and bias, positioning Some Spider and Johnson & Johnson Consumer Health Baby Brands (Johnson’s, Aveeno Baby & Desitin) as industry leaders, creating awareness and supporting social action.
