At a moment when the world is acknowledging the power of women’s voices, HP is inviting girls to reinvent their stories and reach for their dreams. In celebration of International Women’s Day, HP is releasing “Paro,” a short film shot in Kolkata, India that follows a girl’s journey as she discovers her passion for storytelling. Alongside the film, HP is introducing a range of social impact programs, rooted in the belief that technology can be a democratizing force in telling and sharing stories that matter. Programs are with Girl Rising, Women Deliver and Black Girls Code.

For International Women’s Day, not only are we celebrating the women driving us forward, we are focused on empowering the next generation of female leaders who are using their talent, passion and abilities to create positive economic, technical, and social impact on our company and in their communities.

HP Inc. President and CEO Dion Weisler celebrates International Women’s Week, highlighting the importance of inspiring the next generation of female leaders.

The greatest stories are an expression of our collective dreams. They unite, uplift and connect us. “Paro” is one of those stories. In it, a young girl experiences the triumph of sharing her story with others through an untraditional and unexpected path. Produced by HP Studios, the film was created to inspire schoolchildren to celebrate their differences and show how technology can reinvent and make life better.
