Editorial Series Honors Individuals Who Are Making an Extraordinary Impact in Their Fields and Communities
SheKnows Media, a leading women's media company with nearly 79 million unique visitors a month* and 246 million social media fans and followers, today announced that it has launched its inaugural 100 Inspiring Women editorial series to honor individuals who are making significant, positive contributions to their fields and communities.
Each group of 20 women, distinguished by various categories, will be recognized on SheKnows.com with a feature on how they’ve taken action to inspire and help others. Education is the theme of this first set of 100 Inspiring Women, which pays tribute to top female teachers, education administrators and founders of schools and education-based programs around the world. In upcoming months SheKnows will reveal 100 inspiring women in five categories through the New Year, featuring women in science and technology next.
“I am honored and humbled to be chosen to represent women in education. I find inspiration from my colleagues, both present and former, who refuse to accept the status quo and consistently ask, 'What else can I do?'" said Kirsten Ecker, Co-Director of Academics for SAGA Innovations National and International.
The inaugural group of inspiring women were selected by SheKnows editors, community members, and the kids in SheKnows Media’s mission-based Hatch program.
“There are countless hardworking women waking up each morning, setting out to do their jobs and just get through the day. While so many women may not realize it, it is likely they are inspiring to someone around them,” said SheKnows Editor-in-Chief Amy Boshnack. “You don’t have to be a state senator or a neurologist to be an inspiration to others, and we are committed to paying tribute to the everyday heroes among us.”
The 100 Inspiring Women feature is an extension of the company’s Experts Among Us program, a 21,000-member strong program that includes a diverse mix of celebrities, bloggers, social media influencers, activists and everyday hand-raisers.
