TEDWomen Simulcast Hosted by TEDxGotham: Day 1
Tuesday, December 7, 2010 from 2:30 PM to 7:00 PM (EST)
New York, NY
Dear friends of TEDxGotham,
Join us for the simulcast of TEDWomen on December 7th at Booz & Co.
We thank Booz & Co. for hosting us! To find about the simulcast on December 8th please click here.
Over the past several years, a flood of fascinating data from the worlds of education, microfinance and more has shown an essential link between investing in women and girls and economic growth, public health, political stability. A new lens reveals women as powerful change agents in developing nations; meanwhile, in the West, generations of educated women are forging new directions in the sciences, arts, business and beyond.
To track this emerging story, the first-ever TEDWomen will invite both women and men to explore in depth: Who are the women leading change? What ideas are they championing? How are women reshaping the future?
The cross-disciplinary, cross-generational program will focus on how women think and work, communicate and collaborate, learn and lead -- what this means and why it matters to all of us. Speakers from around the globe -- both men and women, from anthropologists to artists, scientists to soldiers, farmers to futurists -- will share their ideas in the classic TED format, creating a program that surprises and inspires.
Some of the speakers you'll hear from will include:
- The physician who discovered the life-saving importance of treating men and women differently
- The women who redesigned their country’s financial system in the wake of near-catastrophe
- The husband-wife team whose collaborative style has sustained an innovative business model
- The tech pioneer whose human-centered approach is redefining how we interact with computers
- The rural woman whose successful startup evokes and supports her community's heritage
- A world leader bringing peace to her conflict-ridden nation
- The teen-age filmmaker whose stories changed how a community saw itself
- The global health expert whose grandmother taught him how inventions transform lives
- The anthropologist who traces altruism to the mother-child bond
- The explorer collecting stories and preserving languages of endangered cultures

With warm regards,
