TEDWomen 2019

Bold + Brilliant

December 4-6, 2019
Palm Springs, CA

This is our year to be bold and brilliant -- without apology. At TEDWomen in 2019, we're shining a spotlight on dazzling ideas from some of the world's most extraordinary risk-takers and innovators. Celebrating pioneers making power moves, brilliant people who are just getting started, and those who tirelessly show up as allies and advocates. TEDWomen 2019 will be no less than a joyful, thought-provoking celebration of smarts, savvy and diverse dynamism.

TEDWomen conferences bring together a global community of people 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.
