Momentum. Moving forward. Gaining speed. Building traction.

At TEDWomen2015, we’ll explore the bold ideas that create momentum in how we think, live and work. From the young scientist revealing a breakthrough discovery to the activist who methodically transformed how the world thinks about women. From the veteran CEO whose trade secrets turn organizations around to the athlete whose extraordinary comeback shocked the world.

We will be live streaming the event from Monterey, California at St. Regis Deer Valley in Park City for 150 people on May 28, 2015. Katie Wright and Phyllis Robinson are co-hosts for the day. Lunch and snacks included and chocolate tasting by Ritual Chocolate. Day runs from 8:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Free to members of Park City Institute. Memberships start at $30. Call the box office at 435-655-3114 to register.

Don’t you owe yourself a day to feed your head?

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 TEDxWomen, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxWomen 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.
