"naturally," our Technology, Entertainment, and Design independently organized TED event from Vail, we assembled some of the world’s most fascinating women leaders in conservation, art, photography, sustainability, biking, education and health sharing their natural mastery to excite you with jazzy, snazzy, and deep ideas that may move you to action.

More than 220 TEDx events around the world took part, sharing the livestream and presenting local speakers around the theme "Invented Here." TEDWomen 2013 channeled the bootstrap spirit of Silicon Valley to celebrate invention in all its forms. Not just technology and things, but also solutions to poverty; approaches to peacemaking; expressions of art, and, at times, our own lives. The result: A truly global conversation -- from San Francisco to São Paulo to Seoul -- celebrating inventors and designers; thinkers and makers; local problem-solvers and global leaders.

Through intriguing talks and innovative adventures, our conference linked the best traditions of innovation together with earnest thought and dialog, uniting cross-generational audiences in Vail Valley. Adventures gave a close encounter with one of our presenters to view their world from a different perspective in a fun and fascinating local setting. Our social spaces delighted with oversized and under-designed hands-on creative expressions. Attendees were part of a global conversation to elevate women’s ideas and solutions.
