BlogHer’s mission is to recognize and support innovative content creators, entrepreneurs and change makers. Every year, we honor that commitment through Voices of the Year (#VOTY), an initiative that spotlights innovators doing culture-shifting work. This year, we’re expanding our reach with the #VOTY100, a list of 100 women across a variety of backgrounds and expertise, whose work will be celebrated across all of our platforms, including BlogHer Creator’s Summit and our first-ever digital issue. Past honorees have included Jameela Jamil, Keke Palmer, Cleo Wade, and more—we have no doubt this year’s crew will be just as, if not more, epic!
We love our community and couldn’t imagine creating this list without you. That being said, we want to know who you’d like to see honored in June. Whether it’s yourself or someone you admire, we’ll be checking out your faves before finalizing every category. Get the low-down on each category below and when you’re ready, submit your nomination here.
