From the 2nd Annual Shorty Social Good Awards

Fearless Girl

Winner in Social Justice, Financial Services, Instagram Presence, Corporate-Community

Finalist in Real Time Response

About this entry

On the eve of International Women's Day, we challenged the symbol of corporate America—Wall Street's Charging Bull—with a bronze statue of a young girl, appropriately named "Fearless Girl." Fearless Girl was designed to represent the power of women today and tomorrow. Hands on hips, chin high, she stands strong in a place the business community couldn't ignore.

Along with the statue, we created #FearlessGirl and invited people across the world to use it in joining our fight by lending their voice and sharing images of the statue. With this social media campaign, we created the opportunity for Fearless Girl to be more than a single statue, but a unifying symbol that transcended her place on Wall Street.

Why does this entry deserve to win?

SSGA wanted to make a statement: they had proven that companies with strong female leadership performed better than their male-led counterparts. Launching the SHE Fund was one strong action from the brand, but it only spoke to financial insiders.

To get broader awareness, the PR strategy was simple: choose the right moment (the eve of the first International Women's Day of the Trump era), the right place (opposite Wall Street's Charging Bull), and the right figure (a proudly defiant and expertly sculpted bronze girl). The strategy was all about context— cultural as well as physical.

Results

Over 1 billion Twitter impressions within the first 12 hours; 3.3 billion Twitter impressions in 5 weeks; 405 million Instagram impressions in 6 weeks.

SSGA's SHE Fund saw a 384% increase in its average daily trading volume in the week following the Fearless Girl launch.

SSGA's share of voice jumped 379% (3/7 - 3/31; source: Radian6).

6 days after Fearless Girl appeared, BlackRock, the world's largest asset manager, followed SSGA's initiative, announcing their commitment to advocating for more women on corporate boards.

Fearless Girl reached 128 countries, with the majority of conversation in financial, leadership, innovation and social justice communities.

Online petitions demanding Fearless Girl remain in place garnered over 40,000 signatures, leading NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio to admit her as city public art, letting her stay through at least 2018.

Fearless Girl inspired Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney to re-introduce her Gender Diversity in Corporate Leadership Act.
