We are excited to announce that the TEDxWaterlooWomen event is taking place on December 1st, 2012 and we’d love for you to join us.

In classic TED style, we are curating and creating a program to surprise and inspire you. We are blending a live stream of the main TEDxWomen event happening in Washington, DC and also presenting talks from local women in our community.

TEDxWaterlooWomen is open to everyone — men and women — interested in knowing more about ideas and possibilities that can be found between boundaries and frontiers.

Our theme is shared with TEDxWomen ’s event in Washington DC, “The Space Between,” and continues the conversation about how women are less likely to approach subjects from a black-or-white perspective as they see the grey area in between. Women know that life is lived in the tensions and contrasts and this event seeks to understand nuances, gain the big picture and find the areas where we need more understanding and perhaps even compromise.
