More than 100 TEDx events around the world will take part, sharing the livestream and presenting local speakers around the theme "Invented Here." The result: A truly global conversation -- from San Francisco to São Paulo to Seoul -- celebrating inventors and designers; thinkers and makers; local problem-solvers and global leaders.
Why attend? Because over the past three years, TEDWomen has launched some powerful ideas into the world. In 2010, Sheryl Sandberg gave the talk that led to her groundbreaking book "Lean In." In 2011, Jane Fonda gave a mind-shifting talk on the unexpected "third act" in women's lives now. In 2012, Angela Patton told the unforgettable tale of a father-daughter dance … held in prison.
This year's program will deliver similarly groundbreaking ideas. Women are so often the creative powerhouses driving progress, and the active force crystalizing change in communities worldwide. From small, local solutions to global movements, the power of women's invention is visible in every region, in every field.
