The team conducted multilayered research, interviewed journalists, experts, readers and adults across the U.S. and tapped into The New York Times’s first-party data to outline recommendations around six key territories: race, climate, sex, gender, tech and money.

“Pivotal offers marketers insight on the role their brands can play in our lives. In the near future, we’ll introduce a variety of ways brands can engage with our experts and our insights,” says the Times.
