Our Placemakers Going Places

Nicole Marshall Places Cincinnati in the Spotlight

For DCI's Cincinnati client, Nicole pitched The Atlantic's reporter Alana Semuels on the idea of covering some of the tremendous inclusion initiatives the city has chosen to take head-on. As a result of developing a relationship with the reporter, Semuels decided to visit the city to cover a series of topics, the first of which was a timely story about Cincinnati's own police-centered riots, much like the scenes in Baltimore from this year. Nicole helped facilitate her visit, connecting her with the appropriate city leaders such as the Mayor, the Police Chief in charge at the time of the riots, and more, allowing Alana to develop this thoughtful, extensive piece on Cincinnati's leadership in the nationwide police reform movement.

DCI’s HQ ‘Moves on Up’

Our NY headquarters recently moved four floors within the same building and the new office has a completely different vibe: open space to increase collaboration, plenty of meeting space for creative brainstorming and the same great location in the heart of Union Square.
