About TEDxWomen events
TEDxWomen events may only be organized around the official TEDWomen conference each year. All TEDx standard rules apply to a TEDxWomen license with a few additions/exceptions:
- You must stream at least one full TEDWomen session, from start to finish, at your event
- You may also apply to host live speakers at your event in addition to the TEDWomen livestream
- A TEDxWomen event must be held on November 2, or up to 24 hours after- for licensees with extenuating circumstances, we will work with you to schedule your event up to one week later
- The license expires once the TEDxWomen event is complete
The TEDWomen 2017 conference will be held from November 1-3, 2017, in New Orleans, Louisiana. This year's theme, "Bridges," speaks to the ways in which we build bridges, traverse them, and sometimes even burn them, for better or worse. We'll have more information about the conference soon.

Naming Your event
If you are a first-time TEDx licensee, you should apply for a location-based name, followed by "Women," like: TEDx(LocationName)Women. Existing TEDx licensees have the option to use the “Women," OR their standard TEDx event name when organizing their TEDxWomen type event (e.g., “TEDxAmsterdam” OR “TEDxAmsterdamWomen”).
Your audience should be from the area or community where you are holding your TEDxWomen event. We recommend that organizers carefully curate their audience, and select a diverse group of people who can contribute meaningfully to the conversation. (Especially for an event with a specific topic of focus, like TEDWomen.)
At your event, you can focus on that year’s official TEDWomen theme, or expand the conversation. Either way, you’ll want to feature a diversity of speakers from across several disciplines, but primarily people who are from the local community you’re serving. Remember, TEDxWomen events can also just be a viewing party of the main TEDWomen event.
TEDxWomen events can be up to one day in length.
If you have live speakers at your TEDxWomen event, you may charge a small fee, but only to cover food + drinks, or as insurance against no shows. If you are just showing the TEDWomen program, the event must be free.
