HP teams up with Girl Rising
To support its commitment to encouraging diverse voices, HP is using Paro's launch to kick off a six-month collaboration with Girl Rising, centering on a worldwide community storytelling challenge. Beginning in April and culminating with the announcement of the winners on October 11, International Day of the Girl, the challenge encourages entrants to share a personal story using whatever their preferred technology may be — pen and paper, a photograph, a video or an audio recording. Winners will receive micro grants, HP products and services and access to mentors to help them amplify their voices.
“Paro was created to spark discussion about dreaming big and chasing your passions, no matter your background or where you are in the world,” says Antonio Lucio, Chief Marketing and Communications Officer at HP Inc. “We believe that powerful stories — told vividly and authentically — can change minds and spark action.”
“Everything starts with a story, and these community-driven projects serve as a catalyst for impact and long-term social change,” says Christina Lowery, CEO of Girl Rising. Because spreading the storytelling magic isn’t just important for children here and now — it’s important for the future.
