TEDxTurtleCreekWomen is back in May 2015

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalk videos and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The community loved our first TEDxTurtleCreekWomen in 2013, and we are back this year with more wonderful speakers. Please register with us to receive the latest news, including when tickets are available for purchase, and follow us on Facebook and Twitter. Thank you in advance to all the speakers, sponsors, volunteers and team!

Why Turtle Creek

turtle-creek-fountain

Considered “the most notable waterway in Dallas,” Turtle Creek has witnessed the city’s history from its farming and ranching roots to its current status as the city with the largest number of corporate headquarters in the country. Fed by numerous fresh springs, Turtle Creek has never run dry. It is a quiet, consistent strength that has fed the core of what Dallas is, and all it will be. This is where optimism meets opportunity.

TEDxTurtleCreekWomen reflects this same strength with fresh ideas that never run dry. We look to draw our speakers, attendees, and staff from all of the diverse communities that make up the areas of Dallas touched by Turtle Creek.

 

TEDWomen 2015

TEDWomen is a three-day conference about the power of women and girls to be creators and change-makers. The program of speakers, workshops, events — and daring discussions — has sparked some of TED’s most iconic moments yet.

This years event theme is “Momentum”. Momentum. Moving Forward. Gaining Speed. Building Traction. It will take place from May 27-29, 2015 in Monterey, CA.

At TEDWomen 2015, we’ll explore the bold ideas that create momentum in how we think, live and work today. 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.
