AN INNOVATIVE COLLABORATION

SHIFTING STORYTELLING INTO HIGH GEAR

Like all Hello Sunshine initiatives, the Reese's Book Club In-Vehicle App celebrates women at the center of the story. So it’s only natural that General Motors engaged a female-led team of engineers to develop the app. Led by Daphne Zargar, Sarah Cleveland and Hayley Serr, the team collaborated with Hello Sunshine to create a fully integrated In-Vehicle App — no phone needed.
