Looking at Microsoft’s advertising, it’s apparent that the tech giant is a fan of purpose. Some of the brand’s more eye-catching and prominent work includes 2018’s campaign for the Xbox Adaptive Controller
and last year’s Super Bowl ad featuring former San Francisco 49ers coach Katie Sowers
, an Adweek Pride Star
, the first woman to coach in the big game. Industry experts believe that Microsoft’s deep commitment to inclusion—internally with its employee makeup and externally in its marketing—helps inform authenticity in how the brand is positioned.
