Impacting the Next Generation

Leaders from Hershey, Girls on the Run and Girl Up on mentorship, leadership and empowerment
The Hershey Company

Hershey’s legacy as a company is rooted in supporting children and youth. To celebrate Women’s History Month, we partnered with two organizations whose impact aligns with our legacy of impacting the next generation; in the U.S. we partnered with Girls on the Run as part of our national launch of Celebrate SHE; in our international markets around the world, we partnered with Girl Up as part of our global Her for She initiative. In addition to lifting up the next generation, our three organizations see and celebrate the world-changing potential of young people and their outsized impact.

In this conversation, Hershey’s Chief Growth Officer, Kristen Riggs, speaks with Elizabeth Kunz, CEO of Girls on the Run and Melissa Kilby, Executive Director of Girl Up on what they’ve learned from the young leaders in their communities, advice they’d give to their younger selves, allyship and more.

Thank you to Girl Up and Girls on the Run for all you do to impact the next generation.
