GenHERation is a female empowerment network for millennial girls. It provides girls the opportunity to work with national corporations and nonprofits to develop their own advocacy campaigns to address community issues. This process is supplemented through an interactive website offering informative content, advice from industry professionals and self-improvement exercises. By actively participating in advocacy campaigns and completing tasks on its website, girls have the ability to earn exclusive rewards and scholarships.
GenHERation was founded by Buffalo, N.Y., resident Katlyn Grasso, a rising senior at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. She is a social entrepreneur passionate about empowering girls. Grasso is a member of Wharton’s Venture Initiation Program and received the 2014 Wharton Venture Award to support the national expansion of GenHERation.
