SheKnows Media Welcomes Arianna Huffington to the Mainstage at #BLOGHER18 Health in New York City in January 2018
NEW YORK, NY – 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, today announced that Arianna Huffington will keynote at #BlogHer18 Health, a conference for health and wellness-focused female content creators taking place January 2018 in New York City.
Named to TIME Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People and Forbes Most Powerful Women lists, Huffington is the co-founder of Pulitzer Prize-winning The Huffington Post media brand. In November 2016, she launched Thrive Global, a media, technology, and corporate services company helping individuals, companies and communities improve their well-being and performance. Thrive Global’s mission is to end the stress and burnout epidemic by offering companies and individuals sustainable, science-based solutions to enhance well-being, performance, and purpose, and create a healthier relationship with technology. Recent science has shown that the pervasive belief that burnout is the price individuals must pay for success is a delusion. It is known, instead, that when individuals prioritize their well-being, their decision-making, creativity, and productivity improve dramatically.
In addition to speaking at #BlogHer18 Health, Huffington will also serve as a premier member of SheKnows Media’s Executive Advisory Board to provide advice and support in bringing the conference to life.
“At Thrive Global, we are committed to accelerating the culture shift that allows people to reclaim their lives and move from merely surviving to thriving,” Huffington said. “SheKnows Media and its #BlogHer conference series share our mission to inspire individuals to prioritize their wellbeing to achieve greatness in all aspects of their lives. I look forward to sharing what I’ve learned throughout my career with a roomful of like-minded female content creators.”
Samantha Skey, President, SheKnows Media, said, “Arianna is a true pioneer, and now she is using her immense influence to help us evolve our thinking about the important, undeniable role that personal wellbeing plays when it comes to our careers. We could not be more thrilled to welcome her to #BlogHer18 Health to reveal what inspired her to launch Thrive Global after more than a decade at The Huffington Post, and what she believes it takes to live a truly successful life.”
