“As a newly public company, Sharon Merrill Advisors helped us translate our existing Impact initiatives and our new ESG focus areas into a compelling, strategic communications framework for the investor audience as well as the general public. We continue to rely on their guidance regarding best practices in the ESG communications space and the evolution of our own Impact narrative over time.
