Meet the powerful women of the #BlogHer16 Experts Advisory Board
Do you love to work with and be inspired by powerful entrepreneurs, activists and executives? We do, too. And that's why we introduced a new #BlogHer15 advisory board last year, to advise and support us as we produced our first annual conference as SheKnows Media.
As we convened and brainstormed and were inspired by our advisory board, we took their advice and turned it into real innovations.
And as we begin to dig deep to make #BlogHer16: Experts Among Us the best conference ever (yes, we SAY it every year, because we BELIEVE it every year), I'm thrilled to introduce the sensational #BlogHer16: Experts Among Us advisory board!
This power-packed team represents activists, entrepreneurs, entertainers, media makers, content creators, community members, brands and sponsors.
We have stacked the deck with many leaders hailing from the Los Angeles community, where #BlogHer16: Experts Among Us will take place August 4-6, 2016. We'll look to our board to lend their expert insight and guidance to make sure #BlogHer16: Experts Among Us provides maximum impact for everyone who attends.
