Congratulations to Ning’s Most Influential Creator of 2011Ning Network Spotlight
Actress/comedian, Amy Poehler, was named today by Time Magazine as one of the most influential people in the world in 2011. In fact, she ranked fourth on that top 100 list, which included the likes of President Barack Obama, Oprah, and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.
We couldn’t be more proud to say that Amy and her team, Meredith Walker and Amy Miles, use Ning to help foster discussions that empower young women and provide a creative outlet for girls to express themselves in ways that are often silly, sometimes insightful, and always authentic. Their community, smartly titled Smart Girls at the Party, is centered around an online video series highlighting girls who are changing the world by being themselves. We first wrote about this site, back in June 2010, and since then, we’re pleased to share that the party is continuing to grow and has nearly 2,000 active members. You go girls!
