NEW YORK, NY – May 8, 2017 – SheKnows Media, a leading women’s media company that averages 60 million unique visitors per month (comScore) and reaches more than 300 million social media fans, announced today that #BlogHer17 will close on June 24 with a keynote panel discussion that explores the life of today’s most influential makers and creators – and how they integrate making media, making change, making an impact, and making a living.
The Makers & Creators panel will feature Amy Ziering, the award-winning filmmaker behind the documentaries “The Hunting Ground” and “Invisible War,” whose work has led to important policy and legislative conversations and change; as well as Zerlina Maxwell, an in-demand political analyst, writer and former Director of Progressive Media for the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign. Maxwell is now the Director of Progressive Programming for SiriusXM Satellite Radio. She and a former campaign colleague, Jess McIntosh, are rallying the resistance with her weekly newsletter, Signal Boost.
“I am so excited to be sharing insights and wisdom with all the engaged and remarkable women at BlogHer as our voices are the future’s hope,” Ziering said.
Maxwell added, “I’m thrilled to be speaking to the diverse audience of engaged women at BlogHer because in this current political climate our voices are needed now more than ever.”
“The big-picture perspective on the creative life and the real-world experiences that Amy and Zerlina each bring to the Makers & Creators panel is sure to motivate our audience of more than 2,000 women who are on that same journey,” said Samantha Skey, President and Chief Revenue Officer, SheKnows Media. “We are thrilled to have such inspiring women to bring #BlogHer17 to a close.”
