Welcome Hispana Global founder Jeannette Kaplun to our National Advisory Board
We proudly announced today that Jeannette Kaplun has joined its National Advisory Board. A member of Responsibility.org’s Education Advisory Board and former “#TalkEarly” blogger, Kaplun is the founder and chief content officer of Hispana Global, a bilingual media platform for Hispanic women, where she shares tips about parenting, beauty, travel, food, technology, social good and more.
“In the Hispanic community, we must begin working with our families, especially across generations, whenever we want to make changes in our attitudes and behavior,” Kaplun said. “It’s a community that beckons a unique approach to addressing big issues like drunk driving and underage drinking, and I believe Responsibility.org, through its many impactful programs, can play a crucial role. Their messages hit home, and embrace different cultures, so I look forward to working with the National Advisory Board to position the organization as a leader within the Hispanic community.”
An award-winning bilingual journalist and TV personality featured on The Chew, Good Morning America, The Steve Harvey Show, Despierta América, Un Nuevo Día, Tu Día Alegre and other shows, Kaplun has successfully forged a multimedia career in both English and Spanish as a lifestyle expert, internationally recognized parenting writer and conference speaker.

A past UN Social Good Fellow, Kaplun has participated in the social good campaigns Blogust, 28 Days of Impact and Relay For Kids. She has also been a speaker at major conferences including BlogHer, Blogalicious, We All Grow Summit, EVO, LATISM, Blissdom, Hispanicize, Social Media Week Miami, SheStreams and SheCon.
