Activism campaigns take on a variety of forms with issues spanning the social and political spectrums. While they are certainly not new, their frequency and impact have been amplified by the widespread use of social media, the divisiveness of societal issues, collaboration among groups advocating for different topics and a track record of successfully influencing organizational change.
Some activists have a sincere desire to work with organizations on resolving issues in ways that are mutually beneficial. However, many of these campaigns are designed to pressure change by impacting an organization’s reputation, disrupting its operations or causing other forms of damage. As a result, organizations that are not prepared to respond could face serious repercussions.
