What is the BlogHer Pathfinder Day?
Pathfinder Day is a pre-conference offering, taking place all day on Thursday, July 24th. Pathfinder Day will be open to only 40-50 attendees for each of four paths, featuring a morning workshop covering fundamental how-tos and an afternoon discussion session, led by two women who have been down that path. The five paths are: The Path to Business Owner, The Path to Media Company, The Path to Change Agent, The Path to Published Author, and The Path to Visual Artist.
