We learn the metaphors as children: Don’t judge a book by its cover. Peel back the layers of the onion. There’s more to someone than meets the eye.
As adults, we say we’re evolved enough to not immediately judge one another based on someone’s past, where they live or the medicine they take. How sure are we that we are as open minded as we say we are? What if we find that the people we work with every day, whom we think highly of and trust with our business, are really behind bars?
During TEDxPerryvilleCorrectional, we’ll peek behind the curtain of incarceration to reveal women with brains, beauty, intelligence, business acumen and more. We’ll address topics surrounding societal issues, education and family. What impact has drugs had on someone? What are the lessons learned through the hard times? The good? Through it all we’ll show the transformation and incredible journeys that are taking place before our eyes.
We’re pulling together an incredible lineup of speakers to share their journeys, their learnings, their goals and their ambitions. Our mission with hosting TEDxPerryvilleCorrectional is to pull back the curtain and make those preconceived notions disappear.
