Eryn Hathaway is a wife, mother and public servant who has built a career around her shared passions of marketing, youth and advocacy. She is the Executive Director of Eryn PiNK Ltd., an organization founded in 2012 under Image Character Etiquette Inc. (ICE Mentors) committed to the empowerment and development of girls and teens. With a mission to educate, inspire and ignite pathways to success, the organization’s role model led curriculum is designed to cultivate healthy lifestyles, academic success and sustained self-worth while encouraging young women to embrace what Eryn refers to as the “enjoyment of girlhood.”
The strategic approach for the organization is simple; everyone needs someone to push them and show them the way. Through programs such as its Lunch Box Girl Talk School Program and The She’s Gold Leadership and Personal Development Program participating girls receive tools and resources to navigate life as confident young women.
For her work and commitment to empowering the next generation of leaders, Eryn was recognized as a 2019 “History Maker” by McDonald’s and Radio One. She is also the recipient of the YWCA Women of Achievement Woman on The Rise Award and the Otterbein University Young Alumni Award for her contributions to the community.
Prior to founding the organization, Eryn served as a brand strategist with a marketing firm. Prior to this she had the privilege to intern at the “most magical place on Earth,” the Walt Disney Company as a dancer and performer.
Eryn is a graduate of Otterbein University where she received her Bachelor’s degree in Public Relations and Speech Communications. She is a Columbus, Ohio native and is married to her, business partner and best friend of seven years, Sherome Hathaway. Eryn has been an educator, mentor and youth leader for more than 12 years. The organization was founded during her senior year of college before she took her passion full-time in 2014.
Alongside her husband, and backed by their Christian values, she hopes to continue to create brave spaces for our young women to grow, thrive, live out loud and be their best selves.
