Every field needs a conscience. No matter what line of work we are in, we need a voice that never stops pushing up to place our highest values ahead of every other consideration, that keeps front and center what really matters, that will not let us forget we are here to make a difference for the better. KLH and Associates, under the leadership of Managing Partner Kim L. Hunter, is just such a conscience for the communications field. For us at Burson- Marsteller, and for me personally as a communications professional, KLH, and Kim, in particular, have played an enormous role in making sure we never lose sight of the responsibility to advance diversity and inclusion as far and as deep as possible, whether it is across our firm, throughout our sector or in the world around us. Yet, more than a ceaseless voice for doing what is right and smart, KLH and Kim have been effective partners in taking action to make change happen. With their help, we at Burson-Marsteller have deepened our commitment to hiring outstanding people and changing our culture in ways that make a significant difference for the better at our firm. They have been with us every step of the way. We look forward to continuing to walk forward with them to take hold of the opportunities that make us an even greater place to work for everyone. They are our change agency, and we are proud to work with them.
