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.

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.

Opening soon: TEDWomen 2017

TED Women TW17

TEDWomen 2017
New Orleans, LA, USA
November 1-3, 2017

We build them, we traverse them, and sometimes we even burn them, for better or worse. For TEDWomen 2017, we'll explore the theme of Bridges, in a city full of crossings and connections: New Orleans.

Over the course of six 90-minute sessions of talks, speakers will share ideas from medical to sociological, science, technology and design, as well as relationships, personal stories and perspectives that offer bridges across race, background, belief, opinion and other differences that divide.
