Here’s what  Hill+Knowlton Strategies  has been up to this week:

Reebok reignites It’s A Man’s World campaign from 2001
In 2001, Reebok launched “It’s a Woman’s World”—a bold ad campaign that mocked established gender roles and featured trailblazing, “it” women of the time. Two decades years later, the brand re-ignited the conversation by releasing It’s A Man’s World: a powerful campaign and product collection celebrating fearless women defying convention and making their mark in traditionally male-dominated fields.

Lincoln Ride and Dine 
To elevate brand perception, highlight Lincoln’s effortless luxury philosophy, and drive footfall to the new Lincoln Vitrine facility in the UAE, H+K and LME hosted the Lincoln Ride and Dine event. Key influencers were carefully selected to take part in the #LincolnLuxury experience, where they experienced effortless luxury from door to door.
