TEDWomen 2015: Momentum

Monterey, CA
May 27-29, 2015

Momentum. Moving forward. Gaining speed. Building traction.

At TEDWomen 2015, we’ll explore the bold ideas that create momentum in how we think, live and work today. From the young scientist revealing a breakthrough discovery to the activist who methodically transformed how the world thinks about women. From the veteran CEO whose trade secrets turn organizations around to the athlete whose extraordinary comeback shocked the world. Learn more


The program includes six speaker sessions over two days, in the traditional TED Talks format of 18-minute talks, mixed with shorter talks, conversations and performances. We’re also planning a day of workshops and seminars supported by our partners, who’ll bring their own focused expertise to the wider conversation.
