TEDWomen stage

TEDWomen is a three-day conference about the power of women and girls to be creators and change-makers. The program of speakers, workshops, events — and daring discussions — has sparked some of TED's most iconic moments yet.

About TEDWomen

TEDWomen brings together a global community of women and men interested in exploring how change begins: with innovative thinkers who catalyze ideas toward action. Over the past few years, TEDWomen and TEDxWomen have launched some powerful ideas into the world.

Most recently, at TEDWomen 2015, more than 40 speakers offered up fresh insights and perspectives around the theme "Momentum". Nearly 240 TEDx events in 68 countries took part, sharing the TEDWomen 2015 livestream while also presenting local speakers tackling the conference theme. The result: A truly global conversation — from San Francisco to São Paulo to Seoul — celebrating movers and makers; designers and do-ers; local problem-solvers and global leaders.
