Catalyzing change in the Black community.




While attending UC Berkeley Haas School of Business, Alison Brock McGill completed an independent study on the intersectionality of corporate social responsibility (CSR) and marketing communications. Specifically, she sought to understand how Fortune 500 firms cultivate successful partnerships with NGOs. She examined trends in corporate philanthropy and employee engagement and she uncovered three truths about each partnership: there was a clear strategy, there were natural synergies, and the partnership engaged its members socially. Using these pillars, Alison founded The Brock Method to facilitate cross-sector connections and ultimately catalyze change. 

Upon graduating, Alison accepted a role at Interpublic Group's Mediabrands division as the Director, Social Impact Strategy. In this role, she piloted a company-wide initiative that drove business results while creating social returns, and started the company's first CSR employee council and pro-bono volunteer program.

Today, The Brock Method empowers nonprofits and social enterprises to achieve growth and development goals through strategic, synergistic, socially-minded plans and campaigns.

“Alison's passion for corporate social responsibility is inspiring. In less than two years at Mediabrands, she launched a socially responsible business program for clients and media partners, created the company's first CSR council, and piloted a skills-based volunteer day for interns and employees! ” - Martin
“Over the past three years, Alison has lent her considerable expertise and skills to Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls with great dedication and enthusiasm, and in the process, she has contributed significantly the organization’s growth.” -Karla





“Alison's contributions to our projects at Avant Garde Media Group are always valuable. She helps us take our ideas to the next level, and reminds us that we can do well and do good at the same time.” - Marlon
