The TedxWomen series coming to London in November is part of TED’s local branch of idea-spreading – TEDx – where speakers engage with communities in a combination of engaging lecture and classic TED video content. TEDWomen aims to inform and spark great conversations with gender and women as a focus.
Coming to an exciting, yet-to-be-confirmed location on the 3rd of November, this will be the 5th TEDxWhitehallWomen. The event is organised by Ruth Shaw, a board member of Women in Football, and Simone Roche, the founder of Northern Power Women. With Roche a self-dubbed ‘serial connectrepeneur’ at the helm, TEDxWhitehallWomen should be replete with interesting speakers from the business world and more.
Entrepreneurs, activists, creatives and leaders come to together at Vue Cinema in the West End to share their combined wisdom on the theme of making, breaking and crossing bridges.
This event focuses on the achievements and wisdom of some of University College London’s most remarkable women. Their first event was ‘unbound’ and since then TEDxUCLwomen have featured an inclusive breadth of talks celebrating all efforts to break down barriers caused by gender and its intersecting oppressions. This year, the theme of home is up for discussion and speakers include intersectional feminist and equality consultant Guilaine Kinouani and vlogger Grace Victory.
