The Neu Project

At the awards show, our work on The Neu Project launch won gold for Best DEI Initiative!

Last year, FIRST partnered with Google to help launch The Neu Project at IMEX 2022 with an impactful video that amplified the stories and experiences of neurodiverse team members, inspiring new methods of inclusion, and inspiring a more neuroinclusive world. In producing the video, FIRST created an authentic and emotionally rich video that adhered to operational and design best practices for neurodivergent communities. 

Other results

In other awards news, Shopify Unite 2022 was a finalist for Best Conference.

Shopify Unite is Shopify’s flagship roadshow event. Our team successfully delivered three, two-day events in three different countries for developers to come together, learn about opportunities on Shopify, and network with each other. With deep relationships and experience in the tech industry, FIRST understood Shopify’s target audience. By sourcing beautiful venues, utilizing gamification, and evolving the Shopify Unite visual identity, we successfully created engaging events that allowed developers to network while receiving industry-leading content.
