PromoKitchen (PPAI 652237) and PromoCares, two volunteer-driven organizations with a focus on uplifting the promotional products industry through education, mentorship and inspiration, are partnering to help professionals become more open‐sourced, share ideas, support one other and innovate.

The collaboration between PromoKitchen and PromoCares is set to produce original content that will focus on collaboration, sustainability, innovation, responsible sourcing, advocacy, community impact, diversity, equity and inclusion, and social and environmental responsibility. Industry professionals are invited to join the conversation and these communities. These two organizations will also host quarterly podcasts together. PromoCares will be shifting its podcast efforts to PromoKitchen and the organizations will operate as the same unit in that arena.

PromoCares’ Karie Cowden, MAS, president at Connect the Dots Promotions, says, “PromoCares Radio is quite excited to collaborate with PromoKitchen and the chefs. The more education and sharing that we can do, the better the industry becomes.”

Johanna Gottlieb, chair of PromoKitchen and vice president of sales at Axis powered by HALO, adds, “I am personally really excited about this podcast collaboration. I have always been a huge fan of the work that PromoCares is doing in our industry. I am excited to learn and grow with them and to share it with the industry.”
