This is the year for women all over the world to be bold and brilliant — without apology. At TEDxJohannesburgWomen 2019, we’re shining a spotlight on dazzling ideas from some of Johannesburg's (and South Africa'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, TEDxJohannesburgWomen 2019 will be no less than a joyful, thought-provoking celebration of smarts, savvy and diverse dynamism. This special event, our first for women since 2013, is an occasion for inspiration, and for recognising the incredible work championed by women and girls in all fields. Everyone – not just women – is welcome to gather in celebration of moving forward, boldly and brilliantly, while sharing the work of shaping our future.
