Business For Good
From helping Ottawa students learn about Canada’s history and what reconciliation means to them, to fundraising concerts for Girls+ Rock Ottawa, to supporting health innovation and driving business strategy for a charity, MediaStyle works to reinvest in the communities that invest in us.
As a proud BCorp, we strive to help make the world a better place through business and we’re excited to share with you the impact of our pro-bono work from the past two years. Each of the organizations that we’ve chosen to support reflects MediaStyle’s values and is a celebration of the incredible folks that are driving positive change in our community.
Support by the numbers:
- A concert held in the commons
- Two Donations to empower local youth
- Three acts of support for future communicators
- Four portraits of community leaders and changemakers
Ten Acts of Tenacity:
This past year, MediaStyle celebrated ten years as a progressive public affairs firm. We’ve come a long way from the media training and style consulting firm from which we began. Our beginnings were as a scrappy startup; now we inhabit two floors in a heritage building, have a team of ten working on some really exciting and important files, and we work every day knowing we are helping make the world better.
We feel so grateful to have been able to spend the past ten years partnering with like-minded organizations to create positive change on issues that matter to Canadians. Ten years felt like an important milestone to us, so we wanted to celebrate.
The Ten Acts of Tenacity campaign was a series of ten actions that gave thanks to the Ottawa community by supporting local organizations, hosting events, honouring community changemakers, and providing donations to organizations that deserve support. We also held a final celebration that took place at our office in January 2019.
Recognizing that each of our staff brings a unique set of passions and skills, we let them choose an action that they felt personally connected to and reflected the values of MediaStyle.
Preparations for this series including branding, brainstorming and event planning began in December 2018, and was rolled out in 2019. We’re thrilled with how this campaign turned out, and are delighted to provide a small snapshot of the fantastic organizations and individuals our team was able to support.
