TEDxGatewayWomen2016 will explore how change begins: with innovative thinkers who share big ideas and catalyse action toward them. In others words: with momentum. In this year’s program we’ll hear from scientists, entrepreneurs, doctors, artists and activists with the kind of ideas that ignite imaginations.
TEDxGatewayWomen2016 will bring together a global community of women and men interested in the innovations, ideas and individuals building momentum around the world.
The global program will start by drawing out collective wisdom —choose from one of two interactive workshops to stimulate your thinking on transformational change. Then, invarious sessions of TED Talks, our speakers will share insights on creating, sustaining and recovering momentum. They’ll offer up fresh insight and new perspectives. Together, we’ll discover a vision of where things are headed.
This year’s program will deliver inspiring & riveting TEDxGateway Women Talks guided by the esteemed TED Format, and allow space for creative collaborations and intimate conversations.
From small, local solutions to big, global movements, the power of women is visible in every region, in every field.
TEDxGatewayWomen will also be presenting local speakers who’ll talk on the theme of “Momentum.” The result: A truly global conversation — from San Francisco to São Paulo to Mumbai — celebrating movers and makers; designers and do-ers; local problem-solvers and global leaders.
At the global edition of TEDWomen 2016, we’ll explore the bold ideas that create momentum in how we think, live and work. From the engineer revealing a breakthrough discovery to the activist who methodically transformed how the world thinks about women and from the dancer whose moves cured her cancer to women who worked hard not for themselves but for the betterment of the society will connect to each and everyone as they will talk to inspire millions with their extraordinary work that has shocked the world.
TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader.
