Nomination Title: TEB BNP Paribas: #ElAlemNeDer (#WhatOthersWouldSay)

In up to 525 words, tell the judges about the nominated research program: its genesis, development, planning, commission, and performance to date:

As TEB BNP Paribas, with “women’s banking”, we aim to get more women participate in the economy and overcome the obstacles against women’s existence in the business world. With #ElAlemNeDer (#WhatOthersWouldSay) digital campaign, we set out to encourage women, inspire them and break the “what would others say” prejudice.

Women are not where they deserve to be in the Turkish business world. According to a research by Deloitte Turkey in the finance industry, bank employees saw the “small number of women leaders” as a crucial problem.

As TEB, with “women’s banking”, we aim to get more women participate in the economy and overcome the obstacles against women’s existence in the business world.

In our social listening, we detected the most common negative expressions women face in Turkey. We knew that with enough support, we could change the prejudice against women as being unsuccessful due to research findings. We created our strategy based on this data, and as TEB, set out to show the importance we give to “women’s banking.”

We planned to release our film on March 8th International Women’s Day. So that we could get more conversations with less media investment. Our campaign hashtag was #ElAlemNeDer (#WhatWouldOthersSay). We released teaser film to start the organic conversation on February 27th. We also purchased a Trend Topic on March 5th on Twitter, and got the largest conversation that day. We reached users with our Masthead on YouTube, to increase our viewership and engagement. After the huge interest raised by our film made for digital channels, we decided to air it on TV.

We reached our message to more than 23 million people by the end of our campaign. We got close to 16 million views; 9 million views were on digital. 51 different industry-leading websites talked about our project as “the campaign that inspires women.” After the campaign, we got 45,000 conversations using the #ElAlemNeDer (#WhatWouldOthersSay) hashtag. More than 2 million people were reached organically through those crowd-sourced posts.
