Edelman identified a brave, culture-first opportunity for Linkedin to strengthen the local Saudi understanding of its global brand. More so, the campaign made a real impact for real women in saudi, helping pave the way for the larger national and global audience to take part in a discussion they were avoiding.
The campaign encouraged many companies in Saudi to re-evaluate their hiring practices, specifically when it comes to hiring women. Linkedin’s platform generated over 548k impressions and over 13k clicks, which exceeded the engagement rate benchmark (0.65%) on the platform by 457%.
