Surprise Keynote!

By: Melanie Blodgett

We love a good surprise and we're positive you'll love this one too. Today, we're announcing our third keynote session, and this one is a full panel featuring EMC founder, Christy Turlington, Mariam Naficy of Minted, Heather Armstrong of Dooce, and Christiane Lemieux of Dwell Studio.

Every Mother Counts is a campaign to end preventable deaths caused by pregnancy and childbirth around the world. EMC informs, engages, and mobilizes new audiences to take action to improve the health and well-being of girls and women worldwide.

So while you enjoy your lunch on Friday, you'll be treated to a screening of the compelling No Woman, No Cry film, then get the chance to participate in a follow-up Q&A session with these four amazing and accomplished women — all four sit on the EMC board and use their voices and influence to do good. We think that's pretty fantastic. 


Eden Hensley

Marketing creative, community engagement specialist, technophile, photographer, food and wine enthusiast, and the founder and editor-in-chief of The Road to The Good Life, a lifestyle blog about appreciating and enhancing your life by being grateful for the "haves" instead of lingering on the "wants." There you will find personal stories about my life and family weaved in with real-life, achievable entertaining tips, recipes for hearty home cooked meals, and DIY projects for capturing and sharing memories. I believe the best place to swap stories is over a shared meal, preferably a Thai-meal served family style, and teach an online introduction class to Thai Flavors and host the Family Dinners at The Station supper club in San Francisco.
