About this event

On Thursday, December 1 from 4:00 PM to 9:30 PM, students at Hendrix College hosted TEDxHendrixCollegeWomen. TEDxHendrixCollegeWomen was held in collaboration with TEDxWomen, a bi-coastal event held simultaneously at the Paley Centers for Media in New York and Los Angeles that took a curated look at women through talks by leading-edge innovators and powerful ideas from women and girls. TEDxWomen united 100+ self-organized TEDx events, including TEDxHendrixCollegeWomen, from around the globe to simultaneously enjoy a live webcast of the speakers at TEDxWomen as well as local programming. The passionate thinkers and doers at TEDxHendrixCollegeWomen enjoyed two live speakers giving original talks that provided a local perspective on issues relevant to women all over the world, a discussion forum, and talks from the main stages of the TEDxWomen conferences via a livestream feed.

Confirmed Speakers

  • Lynnette Watts
    Supportive of the Women’s Foundation of Arkansas since its founding, Lynnette brought her 20 years of diverse nonprofit experience to fill the executive director position in July of 2009. In her role she encourages women to become – or to see themselves as – philanthropists by educating them on the plethora of ways a small action or gift can make a significant and lasting impact on the future of Arkansas. Building the principle of WFA’s grant-making, operations, and Girls of Promise™ endowments to ensure that the Foundation’s work benefiting Arkansas’s women and girls continues in perpetuity is Lynnette’s primary goal.
  • Kim Maslin-Wicks
    Kimberly Maslin-Wicks is an Associate Professor of Politics and International Relations at Hendrix College, where she teaches a wide range of courses in American Politics and Political Philosophy. During the spring semester, she will offer a new course entitled, Feminism and the Modern Crime Novel. Her current research examines the work of Hannah Arendt as an attempt to offer a politically responsive modification of Martin Heidegger’s fundamental ontology. Her most recent work “The Gender Neutral Feminism of Hannah Arendt” is forthcoming in Hypatia: A Journal of Feminist Philosophy.
