Donna Orender to Speak at BlogHer17

Donna Orender will be speaking at BlogHer17Generation W’s Donna Orender will be part of the Main Stage at #BlogHer17, June 22-24 in Orlando, Florida.   Donna will be giving a Spotlight Talk on the inner athlete in us all as well as moderating the Winning: Passion and Perseverance keynote.

The all-star panel, which also includes Gabrielle Reece, volleyball legend and Olympic gold medalist, Laurie Hernandez, gymnast and Olympic gold medalist,  Dani Rylan, Founder and Commissioner of the National Women’s Hockey League, and Jessi Miley-Dyer, World Surf League Women’s Commissioner, will focus on the important role female athletes play as an inspiration to women and girls, and how playing sports can influence self-esteem and future success. It will also explore how these women athletes use their considerable social media reach and influence for good.

“We are all athletes in our commitment to be the best we can be in our lives,” Donna said. “Whether we realize it or not, we all share the core values that make athletes great – persistence, determination and commitment. The conversation will be a very relevant one for everyone in the audience.”

Samantha Skey, President of SheKnows Media, added, “We admire athletes for their unabashed drive and ability to confront and overcome advertising to win. This is especially true for women athletes, who are increasingly claiming their rightful place in the spotlight across a wide spectrum of sports – including traditionally male-dominated pursuits like ice hockey and surfing. We are thrilled to welcome Gabrielle, Donna, Laurie, Dani and Jessi to the stage at #BlogHer17 to talk about what it takes to win, and how they wield their influence to support causes they believe in, and what they plan to conquer next.”
