In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxDelthorneWomen, where x = independently organized TED event.
At our TEDxDelthorneWomen event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. These events are organized by passionate people who seek to uncover new ideas and the latest research that spark conversations in their communities.
With our own event and theme, Revolutionize, we're about shining a light on the voices that are revved up about reimagining a new and just society through a revolutionary lens. Not just from a space of dismantling tired, old concepts and fighting oppressive views, but implanting fresh seeds rooted in new imaginings, curiosity and right relationship. Join the revolution!
Our Role & Responsibility Navigating Through COVID-19
At TEDxDelthorneWomen, in addition to uplifting our community, we believe it is our role and responsibility to also prioritize: the health and well-being of our beloved community, while also playing a constructive role in supporting the health officials working to contain this virus. Through that lens, we will continue to make decisions with vigilance and in adherence with the latest science-based information and local county & State regulations.
2021 theme: Revolutionize
The application process is now closed. Please stay tuned for our speaker line up to be announced.
Application Deadline: September 13th
Applications are open to trans and cis women and non-binary and gender nonconforming people who are open to speaking in a femme-centered event.
