About this event

We gather community of TED fans and friends in Kyiv to watch TEDWomen from Washington DC.

On this occasion we also prepare some pre-party speeches by Ukrainian women with bright ideas and exciting life stories as part of TEDxKyivWomen event.

We will talk about the place of women in Ukraine's contemporary society, what qualities and skills help them to become leaders and, finally, what Ukrainian women can say to the world?

There'll be three speakers and one performer each evening before the live cast start.

We take off at 7:30 pm Kyiv time, then at 9 pm TEDWomen opens and we cover it by midnight.
The schedule is the same for both days.
