TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world's leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less. Many of these talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman.The annual TED Conference takes place each spring in Vancouver, British Columbia. TED's media initiatives include TED.com, where new TED Talks are posted daily; the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from volunteers worldwide; the educational initiative TED-Ed. TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world get help translating their wishes into action; TEDx, which supports individuals or groups in hosting local, self- organized TED-style events around the world, and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
TED is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world. We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world. TEDWomen 2017 is being organised a New Orleans LA. USA from November 1 -3, 2017. TEDWomen is a three-day conference about the power of women and girls to be creators and change-makers. The program of speakers, workshops, events and daring discussions has sparked some of TED's most iconic moments yet. TEDWomen brings together a global community of people interested in exploring how change begins: with innovative thinkers who catalyse ideas towards action. Over the past few years, TEDWomen and TEDxWomen have launched some powerful ideas into the world.
We invite you to be a part of this rarified community and share YOUR ideas on the TEDxSRMUWomen Platform.
The theme for the TEDWomen Conference this year is BRIDGES. We build them, we cross them, and sometimes we burn them... at TEDxSRMUWomen 2017, we will explore the many aspects of this year's theme: BRIDGES, through migrated talks.
