NEW YORK, March 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- BlogHer will honor International Women's Day on Monday, March 8th at 1 pm ET with a virtual celebration devoted to the changemakers creating economic empowerment for women everywhere.

BlogHer is committed to the economic advancement of the women it has served for the past 16+ years. In April 2020 it launched BlogHer Virtual Events, an ongoing series of virtual workshops, panel discussions, and inspirational conversations.

BlogHer will honor International Women's Day with a virtual celebration on March 8th at 1 pm ET.

"With our mission of economic empowerment for all women, BlogHer's platform provides essential services to ensure that our community has the tools to thrive in their careers while scaling their businesses," said CEO of SHE Media, Samantha Skey.

To date, more than 5,000 creators and entrepreneurs have joined our events to discuss their unique business challenges and hear about best-in-class tools and platforms from our sponsors, including Legal Zoom, which offers expert advice on how to form your business, trademark your brand, and arm yourself with the right legal support. 

Event highlights include a conversation with Philip Morris International's Chief Diversity Officer, Silke Muenster, who will discuss the importance of workplace inclusion and diversity and how to incite meaningful, lasting change through global leadership on equal pay, changing the face of leadership at PMI, and taking steps to improve gender equity across the organization.

Said Muenster, "We are invested in understanding where we are today and what the future will look like.  'The standard you walk past is the standard you accept.' This is really important. Every day, we see microaggressions and people being marginalized, and we have to speak up."

A Fireside Chat with Priyanka Chopra Jonas, the award-winning actress, producer, and New York Times best-selling author, will discuss her career trajectory, the importance of pay equity, staying resilient and knowing your worth

Debra Messing and Ai-jen Poo, Executive Director of National Domestic Workers Association, will discuss why economic recovery for women is vital and how they are using their platforms to help facilitate this and more.
