So, what is it?

As previously mentioned, the TEDWomen2018 event will be taking place between Wednesday 28th- Friday 30th November 2018 in Palm Springs, California. 

The event will be composed of inspirational women that continuously are breaking out, rising up and pushing boundaries. These amazing individuals are compiled into themed sessions what cover a diverse range of specialisms and topics.

Unfortunately, the Palm Springs TEDWomen conference is very far away and sold out. However, no need to worry friends in Leeds - the TEDxUniversityofLeeds committee is bringing you the next best thing.

Therefore, after analysing the selection of participating speakers and sessions available, we have unanimously chosen one that we think perfectly captures the essence of the conference.

This session will be central to our TEDxUniversityofLeedsWomen event and will be streamed for our audience here at the University of Leeds.
