What better way to celebrate Ideas that Elevate?
What is TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED (a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks), has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxPasadenaWomen, where x = independently organized TED event.
At our TEDxPasadenaWomen event, TEDTalks videos and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
