TEDWomen2017 will be a live webcast from the Orpheum Theater in New Orleans and will feature a women’s leadership luncheon (with tables of eight hosted by a local female community leader — you select a lunch table at registration); a special announcement about TEDxGreensboro2018; and an opportunity to tour the Joint School and learn about the nanoscience and nanoengineering programs. The theme for TEDWomen2017 is Bridges – “We build them, we cross them, and sometimes we even burn them…”
At TEDWomen 2017, we will explore the many aspects of this year’s theme through curated TED Talks at a time of deep divides and rising global challenges. We will hear TEDWomen presentations from twenty-seven speakers — entrepreneurs, innovators, artists and activists, thought leaders from business and civil society—bridge builders from around the world.
The webcast is held at JSNN, 2907 East Gate City Blvd.
Tickets range from $22-$37.50.
