This week at Seaport District Pier 17 hundreds of attendees attended the successful 14th annual #BlogHer18 Creators Summit. Samantha Skey, President and Chief Revenue Officer for SheKnows Media, and keynote speakers over the two-day event included Brooklyn Decker, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Gabrielle Union, Amy Schumer, Maria Menounos and Tiffani Thiessen.

Amy Schumer surprised guests with a special introduction to the Voices of the Year Awards (VOTYs) and shared her remarks on the importance of acknowledging and amplifying women’s voices to make a change.
The VOTY honorees included Monsurat Adebanjo (founder of the Urban Culturist), Nekpen Osuan (co-founder of WomenWerk), Sweta Vikram (NYC-based author, advocate and yoga instructor), Dr. Alaa Murabit (medical doctor & UN High-Level Commissioner on Health Employment & Economic Growth), Clementine Wamariya (author of The Girl Who Smiled Beads), Donna Orender (former President of the WNBA & founder of Generation W), Eboni K. Williams (Fox News Anchor), Adrienne Lawrence (attorney by trade & on-air host and legal analyst), and U.S Senator Kirsten Gillibrand.
