Samantha Skey

CEO at SHE Media


Skey leads SHE Media, a mission-driven digital media company created by and for women, which is home to properties including SheKnows.com and BlogHer, the largest conference for women content creators and entrepreneurs in the U.S. She also created the #Femvertising Awards, which recognize brands whose advertising empowers women and girls and defies stereotypes.

All of you who are producing conferences and events on a regular basis and have the opportunity to show your values get at it. … After sitting in so many conferences where I’m like “is there even a woman in here never mind a person of color?”… I’m in the back of the room thinking “Wow this could be better.”
