Women’s History Month: A time to celebrate female empowerment and ingenuity
To honor Women’s History Month, Stacy’s pita chips has released limited edition designs illustrating how women are celebrating supporting and advancing each other. In an effort to help the next generation of female leaders, Stacy’s is donating her proceeds to Step Up, an organization that helps girls in under-resourced communities reach their potential. That is why Kia Malone and The Hype magazine are joining the Women’s History Month celebration. She is here to discuss what inspired Stacy’s pita chips partnership with Step Up and to talk a bit about Stacy’s own entrepreneurial pursuits.
Based on both your experience as a mother and teacher, what are some of your tips for how we can motivate and inspire young women to dream big?
Certainly, you know just pay attention to what your child loves! If
your child is interested in science and they love to do all these experiments around the house, maybe look for some summer programs at your local science museum or if they want to own their own business, maybe look for a business that would offer some sort of internship or even provide mentors. If you listen to your kids, they will lead you in the right direction.
Tell us what the bags in front of you mean and how they are helping to promote women’s achievements.
Sure, well in honor of Women’s History Month, which is the month of March, Stacy’s pita chips are celebrating the achievements of women past, present, and future by releasing these limited-edition original art packaging showing how women are rising to the occasion. Stacy’s will donate to Step Up which is an organization aimed at helping girls from under-resourced areas reach their potential.
The founder of the company has quite the success story, doesn’t she?
She sure does! Stacy’s pita chips were founded by Stacy Madison who is a strong passionate businesswoman who basically transformed her Boston pita chip food cart into a household name all over the country. So, she said you know what, I’m not stopping — I’m going to make this happen no matter what and that’s exactly what the message is, make your dreams come true no matter what!
How are you celebrating Women’s History Month?
I always like to think outside the box with my daughter and do some really fun things. She’s interested in science and makeup, what a combination. I tell her all the time, you can become a chemist for a cosmetic company, you can develop your own lipstick or maybe come up with a new eye shadow or something like that. So, we really look for ways to encourage her to stay in tune with herself and stay in tune with those science and math programs, because they can really take you in a different direction and have so much fun!
