Join our community as we gather for Rise + Shine, a TEDxSanAntonio Women event.

NOTE: All genders are encouraged to attend, as well as students from middle school on up.

We selected this theme to celebrate and explore self-empowerment and to riff off the TEDWomen 2019 event, Bold + Brilliant.

Get ready to Rise + Shine! We’ve got 3 amazing speakers, wisdom and tactics on tap, along with the opportunity to practice and explore some new ways of thinking and being.

Watch and discuss TEDWomen 2019: Bold + Brilliant talks. TEDWomen has granted us a license to stream talks from this sold-out event. We’ll select and discuss talks from a great segment of this year’s lineup.

Share your ideas and experiences. Everyone who attends has great ideas and insights, so we’ve included time to dive into the ideas presented and share your thoughts with your fellow attendees.

Hear from three amazing live speakers!

Lily Casura, MSW: Coming Out of the Shadows: Women Veterans and Homelessness after Military Service

Sara Bodner, PhD: From #MeToo to UsTwo: Getting Real About Men as Allies

Managing Director
Dr. Bodner understands the plight of the executive. Sarah is a coach, trusted advisor and confidante to executives leading in changing environments. Her clients are Fortune 500 leaders in the fashion, chemical, medical, energy, and airline industries. She has been a senior leader within a highly regulated, risk averse, geographically dispersed organization that was forced to change in response to immense technological, political, and financial pressures. Her "super power" is the ability to quickly sort through highly complex challenges, with often conflicting and disparate stakeholder views, then identify a simplified path forward. Dr. Bodner holds a Ph.D. in Industrial / Organizational Psychology.
