Her Campus Media, the No. 1 new media brand for the empowered college woman with chapters at more than 300 colleges and universities worldwide, is a recent recipient of the Office on Women’s Health 25th Anniversary Partnership Award. The Office on Women’s Health (OWH), part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, provides national leadership and coordination to improve the health of women and girls through policy, education and model programs. Her Campus Media (HCM) is recognized for promoting OWH’s mission, most notably during National Women’s Health Week, where HCM founders have served as ambassadors empowering women to take steps to lead their healthiest lives through exercise, diet, and a focus on mental health.
Running these campaigns on a strictly pro-bono basis, HCM has utilized its full suite of award-winning college marketing services including digital, social and email efforts while also tapping into its vast on-campus network of college women – an important audience for OWH that has been historically difficult to access.
"Supporting women's health is at the core of our mission at Her Campus Media, where we serve college women in all aspects of their lives through our content programming, events, and more. It has been such a privilege to partner with the Office on Women's Health over the years and we are incredibly honored to receive this award and to be able to highlight what is one of our most important partnerships every year," said Stephanie Kaplan Lewis, co-founder & CEO of Her Campus Media.
In addition to amplifying National Women’s Health Week, Her Campus Media has executed supplementary campaigns inclusive of guest blogging, national giveaways, and exclusive interviews in support of OWH and partners. The company also recently launched a series of health-related surveys in efforts to both uncover trends in women’s health and share results with its audience. The results were fascinating and widely shared across both the Her Campus network and the PR circuit.
