Welcome, Caleb! (No, he’s not a new hire)

February 16, 2011

We are very happy to announce the birth of Caleb Patton, son of our colleague Chloe Chittick Patton. Caleb, who was born on January 8, paid his first visit to the office this week, a festive occasion for everyone (except Caleb, who slept). We are all thrilled for Chloe and her husband, Andy, as they welcome their first child into their family.

Chloe has traded her long days with us for even longer days caring for her little cutie, at least until early April, when she returns to work on a part-time basis. Though we miss her around here, we’re managing to keep all of the research projects she was leading on track. Many of those projects have been transferred to the capable hands of senior associate Sarah Lee, who is making the additional workload look easy.

Given how busy we are, we’re secretly hoping that Chloe will take every opportunity to groom Caleb as our next researcher, perhaps with a specialty on (very) young audiences. “With Chloe as his mom,” says research analyst Mike Hanus, “we fully expect his inner research geek to shine through by the time he’s out of diapers. I can see him on the playground in kindergarten, preaching about the importance of rigorous survey methods.”

(Then again, with lawyer Andy as his father, the preaching might be about playground safety and liability.)

Chloe sends hellos to all the clients she hasn’t spoken to in the last month. Want to send a note of congratulations to her? Shoot her an email!

Multiculturalism is key for creating inclusive arts experiences


Last month, Coca-Cola aired its now-famous Super Bowl ad depicting people from various racial, ethnic, and cultural groups singing “America the Beautiful” together in different languages. Among the instant outpouring of polarized reactions to this ad rang much praise for its depiction of a multicultural America. Yet the ad provoked a slew of negative responses as well. Many of the ad’s detractors questioned whether this multicultural America could ever feel as cohesive as an America whose citizens speak a common language, and therefore have taken great strides toward assimilating into a common culture.
