Live from San Francisco in association with TEDWomen, and locally with amazing speakers, and surprise performances

Come explore time zones, time travel, time outs and times together. We will explore the conventions and challenges of time.

We will ask the hard questions. Because isn't IT ABOUT TIME:

To find long-term solutions to climate change, poverty, immigration, violence, race, gender and economic inequities?

We have invited stimulating local women, who are pioneers in their work or communities, to tell us about how they have harnessed time for their cause.
