Bialik to Discuss Diverse Topics, Including the Launch of Her Own Online Community, GrokNation
NEW YORK, NY – December 1, 2015 – SheKnows Media, a leading women's media company with 87 million unique visitors a month1 and 253 million social media fans and followers2, today announced that Mayim Bialik, star of the #1 television comedy3 “The Big Bang Theory” and founder of GrokNation, will keynote #BlogHer16: Experts Among Us, taking place in Los Angeles, California, August 4-6, 2016.
Bialik stars on the CBS hit “The Big Bang Theory,” where she plays the role of Amy Farrah Fowler (a role for which she received an Emmy nomination each year from 2012 to 2015 for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series). Additional accolades include nominations for SAG Awards and Critic’s Choice Television Awards. Bialik gracefully transitioned from her start as a young star, having played young Bette Midler in "Beaches" and the lead role on the NBC sitcom “Blossom,” among other roles.
Bialik also earned her doctorate in neuroscience and is a tireless advocate for STEM education and careers, especially for girls and women. Her latest endeavor, GrokNation, is an online community for people of all ages and backgrounds to dive deeply into conversations about contemporary issues in an accessible and unapologetically nerdy way. GrokNation aims to activate readers to engage in online conversations that lead to offline action, mobilizing individuals toward changing the world as a community. Bialik is also the author of two books: “Beyond the Sling,” which guides parents through the world of attachment parenting, and “Mayim’s Vegan Table,” a vegan family cookbook.
“Mayim’s diverse interests mirror the diversity of the SheKnows Media community and its interests, from technology to food to entertainment and every kind of online geekery in between,” said Elisa Camahort Page, Chief Community Officer, SheKnows Media. “We look forward to discussing how Mayim inspires us to laugh, to learn, to connect and to take action by sharing her authentic passions.”
“I am honored to be part of BlogHer as a woman who blogs because I believe in the strength we women can have and grow by sharing our experiences. BlogHer is the source of so much inspiration, intelligent conversation and fun and I can't wait to be a part of it.”
#BlogHer16: Experts Among Us seeks to inspire and empower women to express themselves and their unique points of view through content creation. More than 3,000 content creators, social media influencers, entrepreneurs, brand executives and industry luminaries are expected to attend this year’s event, which is produced by SheKnows Media.
