As we each seek to carve out our place in the world, we sometimes must fight stereotypes. For that reason, our self-branding efforts are crucial. [See, for example, Write YOUR Own Unique Personal Brand Story, Best and Worst Workplaces for Women Executives, and Social Media Stereotypes: Ouch!]. Today, we look at Land O’Lakes breaking stereotypes.
About Land O’Lakes
“In 1921, we formed the Land O’Lakes Dairy Co-op with the belief that we’re better when we work together. Today, we’re 1,791 dairy farmers strong. Land O’Lakes has a long history of working together to innovate. Our new campaign helps extend that story, demonstrate our values, and give back to the community. Hunger disproportionately affects women and 3.1 million food insecure households are led by single women. That’s why Land O’Lakes and the Land O’Lakes Foundation have partnered with Feeding America to donate $1 for every “She-I-O” music video share, up to $100,000.”
“When most people think of farmers, they often picture men. But in reality, 30% of US farming is done by women. To celebrate our female farmers who are rewriting the rules of farming, we worked with Nashville’s Americana-soul powerhouse Maggie Rose to rewrite the most famous song about farming, ‘Old MacDonald.'”
Land O’Lakes Breaking Stereotypes
“Our Dairy Foods business is kicking off a new LAND O LAKES brand campaign, All Together Better, that does just that with a new song and video called, ‘She-I-O.’ Songstress Maggie Rose and songwriter Liz Rose collaborated to re-imagine the song ‘Old MacDonald,’ introducing ‘She-I-O,’ a rousing anthem for a new generation that celebrates inclusion and champions women, just in time for Women’s Equality Day on August 26).”
