Theme: What now?

This event occurred on
December 3, 2021
Tehran, Tehrān

What a time it has been! The past year has upended so much for so many, and forced global reckonings with systems, processes, and policies that too often let us down. So … what now? At this year’s TEDxTehranWomen, we’ll hear from speakers who are imagining new possibilities and exploring new ideas for how we might live and work better together in the years to come. We’ll learn the “what now?” in fields including design, technology, science, and culture — and together, we’ll envision a future we can build together.
