Entreprenista, a media company and membership community dedicated to the advancement of women-led businesses, is proud to celebrate and empower women across the globe in partnership with Hershey India through their #HerShe campaign in celebration of International Women’s Day (March 8th).
The Hershey Company’s award-winning #HerShe campaign, which originated in Brazil in 2020, will transform its iconic Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bar wrapper into a celebration of cultural female icons, or “Sheroes”, their accomplishments, and the impact these Sheroes have made in their communities. Leading up to International Women’s Day, March 8th 2022, Hershey India will feature admirable female figures on the front of their candy bar wrappers. In doing so, Hershey India aims to provide an additional platform for the outspoken women in all of us, amplifying the voices behind our unique stories and experiences.
“The campaign strives to celebrate inspiring stories of Sheroes in our society, who have displayed excellence by either taking the path less traveled or by simply creating a positive impact on people around them. Our idea is to bring alive galvanizing stories by making the ‘invisible visible’!” says Geetika Mehta, Managing Director, Hershey India.
You can Join the #HerShe movement by dedicating a social media post to honor a woman who has made a difference in your life, ‘Your Shero’ in the packs on this page. Be authentic and nominate someone you know personally who truly inspires you. You simply pick a pack of six custom illustrations, upload the name and photo of the woman you are nominating, and a dedicated message to her.
