about the event

TEDxGastownWomen was the first TEDxWomen event to take place in Vancouver - celebrating the power of women and girls to be creators and change-makers. The theme for 2016 is Power, 2015's theme was Fearless. TEDxGastownWomen 2016 will take place in late October and will feature a curated lineup of diverse speakers spanning industry, origin, age and experience. The presentation will also feature a selection of simulcast segments of the TEDWomen event taking place the same day. The goal of this event is to help people connect in an environment that inspires the expression of unique points of view, and dialogue that can open minds and change opinions about the true meaning of Power.

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED 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 TEDxGastownWomen, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxGastownWomen event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
