Last December, the first-ever TEDWomen conference (hosted by Pat Mitchell) took a curated look at women through the lens of change agent, intellectual innovator, and idea champion; from twenty-six countries we gathered more than seventy speakers.
That conversation continues now for a one day, bicoastal meeting on December 1, 2011. Our speakers include the famous and undiscovered, artistic and scientific, pioneers and innovators, from Jane Fonda to Lamis Zein, the woman who heads an all-female bomb-disposal unit in Lebanon; from Barbara Walters to the amazing singer-songwriter Morley; from social-media maven Tiffany Shlain to Vietnam refugee and tech entrepreneur Tan Le, and from documentarian Jennifer Newsom to cultural anthropologist Mary Catherine Bateson. And throughout the day, we'll welcome young girls to our stage such as young fashion icon Tavi Gevinson and South African teen Busisiwe Mkhumbuzi who will inspire us with the ways they are starting the conversation and leading their own change.
The audience in New York and Los Angeles is invitation-only, but you can organize your own TEDxWomen event or attend one in your area. Learn more by visiting TEDxWomen.org and following us on Twitter @TEDxWomen and Facebook.com/TEDxWomen.
