TEDxGreensboro Salon Women's Health Equality

Join us on Tuesday, May 21, 2024, at 6 PM for the TEDxGreensboro Salon on Women’s Health Equality! The event will be held @transformgso, 111 W. Lewis Street, Greensboro, NC 27406. Join us at Salon to share your thoughts or come to listen and enjoy!

The TEDxGreensboro Salon is free, but registration is limited to the first 75 people. Doors open at 5:30 PM and the Salon will begin promptly at 6 PM and conclude at 7:30 PM. This event is BYOB – plus bring a brown bag dinner or snack as needed.

The program will feature a TED Talk that addresses equality in women’s health — from hysteria to today — followed by a moderated group discussion.

Salons are smaller events that keep a TEDx community engaged between regular TEDx events. Attending a Salon is a unique experience because the audience is fully involved in the program. Through a moderated discussion, we’ll offer questions, thoughts, and ideas related to a curated topic. Come to mix and mingle with other TEDx’ers and talk about “ideas worth spreading.”
