DETROIT – General Motors recently selected Majority Agency as its creative agency of record for branded diversity marketing initiatives, GM’s fourth diverse agency of record. As GM strives to be the most inclusive company in the world and looks to its vision of an all-electric future with zero crashes, zero emissions, and zero congestion, it is imperative to ensure authentic representation among current and future customers.

“Majority shares our belief that this is a cultural inflection point, not just for EVs, but for multicultural marketing,” said Tarshena Armstrong, GM Director of Diversity Marketing and Development. “It’s about authentic connection, community, and a commitment to drive cultural awareness through inclusive marketing practices that earn cultural capital for GM and our family of brands.”

“Today we are in the infant stages of a perception shift around EVs. But we need to make the category more inclusive,” explains Brandon Butler, chief content officer, Majority. “That means multicultural marketing can’t just be an exercise in consulting, versioning and micro-targeting. It must be a leading conduit to the popular culture that transcends our differences and connects us all.”

“Investing in sustainable growth and fostering equitable representation extends our reach and strengthens the communities where our customers live and work to ensure education about the transition to EVs,” Armstrong said.
