Mingling begins at the downtown offices of MiamiShared starting at 6 p.m. with light refreshments and great conversation. The video stream begins promptly at 7 o’clock.
Space is limited, so sign up quickly to ensure your participation in what promises to be a thought provoking and entertaining evening. Be ready to hear a few ideas worth sharing and to share your ideas with others!
This event is made possible through the generous support of our partner, the Knight Foundation, which is sponsoring all TEDxWomen events across the nation.
The first-ever TEDWomen conference (hosted by Pat Mitchell last December) took a curated look at women as change agents, intellectual innovators, and idea champions. That event drew more than seventy speakers from twenty six countries to Washington, D.C. Notables included U.S.Secretary of State Hillary Clinton; Somali mother-daughter doctors Hawa Abdi and Deqo Mohamed; Nobel Peace laureate Jody Williams; Egyptian-American blogger Mona Eltahawy; media mogul Ted Turner; and young roboticist Cynthia Breazeal.
The conversation continues this December 1, when TEDxWomen reunites the vibrant global community assembled in 2010 to continue showcasing leading-edge innovation and powerful ideas from dynamic women of all ages—plus a few remarkable men. Join us at TEDxMIAWomen to get a intimate experience of the event in your city.
