We ensure multicultural audiences are seen, heard and valued every day of the year.



M365 is a Allison+Partners multicultural marketing offering that brings together a team of specialists with expertise in ensuring diverse consumer groups are seen, heard and valued every day of the year. M365 is an evolution of the agency’s approach to multicultural communication and explores audience engagement through three distinct multicultural dimensions: cultural heritage, cultural status and cultural integration.   

Each multicultural dimension explores heritage, racial identities, sexual orientations, lifestyles, attitudes, beliefs, behaviors, points of engagement and best channels to engage. The offering leverages research, data science, cross-channel insights, media relationships and measurement reporting to implement successful local and global multicultural campaigns.



The specialty collaborates with brands across industries and has a global reach to enhance intercultural storytelling across continents, a critical component for clients doing business or expanding globally.   


M365 offers several cultural-driven approaches to help clients create more effective and inclusive multicultural marketing campaigns that truly resonate with their target audience. Strategies include:  


  • Incorporating data science and technology through a digital-first approach to promote authentic brand awareness that uniquely reflects today’s multicultural consumer and the platforms where they consume content  
  • Creating relevant moments that tap into cultural trends and conversations   
  • Keeping pace with the ever-evolving societal shifts of multicultural audiences   
  • Leveraging research such as quick pulse surveys, focus groups and data insights to help clients understand motivations, aspirations, and key purchase drivers  


M365 has already helped clients like Toyota and Denny’s build and create authentic connections with multicultural consumer markets.

The team executes some of Toyota’s multicultural public relations, supporting key cultural moments throughout the year such as programs like Native American Heritage Month Chef Collab to share the history of Indigenous Americans and food or Steeped in History to share the stories of how African American history affected local US cities and Lunar New Year to authentically celebrate Asian culture.



The team also supports Denny’s activations for HBCU sports in campaigns like the Orange Blossom Classic between two powerhouse HBCUs Florida A&M and Jackson State University. As the title sponsor, Denny’s was pivotal in bringing this important classic back to the HBCUs after a 40-year hiatus.
