NEW YORK, NY – June 8, 2016 – SheKnows Media, a leading women’s media company with 76 million unique visitors per month* and a total reach of 292 million social media fans, today announced that nine-time Grammy award-winning singer, songwriter and breast cancer survivor Sheryl Crow will appear at #BlogHer16: Experts Among Us in Los Angeles, Aug. 4-6, 2016.
Crow joins a roster of high-profile speakers set to take the stage at the conference, including “The Big Bang Theory” actor, neuroscientist and STEM education advocate Mayim Bialik, and Sarah Michelle Gellar, best known for lead roles in “Buffy The Vampire Slayer,” “The Crazy Ones,” and “Cruel Intentions” and the launch of her new line of family friendly baking kits, Foodstirs.
Produced by SheKnows Media, #BlogHer16: Experts Among Us is the largest gathering of women online, attracting 3,000-plus content creators, social media influencers, entrepreneurs, brand executives and industry luminaries each year. This year’s conference will take place at the JW Marriott L.A. LIVE.
On Friday, Aug. 5, Crow will take to the main stage for a Q&A to discuss her award-winning and genre-spanning music career, life with her two adopted sons, how her life has changed in the ten years since her original breast cancer diagnosis in 2006, and how that experience led her to become an advocate for early detection. Crow was recently named spokesperson for an early detection education initiative created by Hologic, Inc., a #BlogHer16: Experts Among Us sponsor.
Elisa Camahort Page, SheKnows Media’s Chief Community Officer, said, “Sheryl is a music icon who has touched our lives with her music, and now her activism. We are thrilled to welcome her to #BlogHer16: Experts Among Us to learn what drives her, and how she crafts a life that melds art, advocacy, and family.”
