Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Announces Pay With Change Initiative, Mandating New Standards For Advertising In 2022 Issue: Progres

NEW YORK , January 20 /Businesswire/ - Today, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit marks its 58th anniversary of its first print issue with the announcement of a new advertising mandate which will only allow brands who are helping drive gender equality forward be featured in the magazine’s annual print issue as well as across their digital footprint. The new platform, Pay with Change, will celebrate companies who are creating change for women in the varied ways they need it, and all brands making progress, big or small, can buy in.

To participate, SI Swimsuit is changing the cost of doing business from a monetary value to a currency of doing good. All brands who prove they are creating change for women will be certified as a Changemaker, which is defined as a brand who has made, is making and will make progress for women by May 2022 when the annual issue hits stands. Each changemaking brand will then be able to purchase a space within the SI Swimsuit 2022 print issue, which will only feature adverts showcasing the progress each brand is making to build equity for all women. Brands will also be featured across SI Swimsuits digital properties including their social media channels. There are additional opportunities for Changemakers based upon investment dollars.

“Sports Illustrated Swimsuit has been leading the charge in creating change in women’s lives for years, despite what some critics and naysayers would like you to believe,” says MJ Day, Editor-in-Chief of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit. “However, in a world where women’s bodies are under attack and their value continuously underestimated, we knew we needed to act in a bold, more responsible way. Pay with Change is not just a platform to us, it is our commitment to creating greater progress for women.”

“Pay with Change will be our new standard of business moving forward,” said Hillary Drezner, General Manager of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit. “It’s our proof of progress, proof of passion, and proof of our belief that we must be the change we want to see. Starting now, we’ll turn our advertising and activation space into a place to create change for women. We are committing to this initiative throughout all aspects of our business and are inviting all brands who are demonstrating progress to join us.”

Additionally, SI Swimsuit, will invest a percentage of every ad dollar generated by the annual issue to create the Sports Illustrated Gender Equity Fund. The Fund will support a nonprofit organization which is on the frontlines of helping create an equitable future for all women.

As part of the brand’s new publishing approach, SI Swimsuit is launching The Swimfluence Network, an inclusive digital community for individuals looking to connect, learn, grow and champion change for the next generation. The Swimfluence Network app features content across all categories including health, wellness, lifestyle, fashion, travel and food and provides opportunities for individuals to create a profile, learn about live events and castings, join a group and engage with the community, SI Swimsuit models and staff. The app also features the brand’s coveted Swim Search platform allowing potential SI Swimsuit hopefuls from around the world to apply to be in the 2022 issue.
