TEDWomen 2019: Bold + Brilliant | December 4-6, 2019 | Palm Springs, CA

This is our year to be bold and brilliant — without apology. At TEDWomen 2019, we’re shining a spotlight on dazzling ideas from some of the world’s most extraordinary risk-takers and innovators. Celebrating pioneers making power moves, brilliant people who are just getting started, and those who tirelessly show up as allies and advocates. TEDWomen 2019 will be no less than a joyful, thought-provoking celebration of smarts, savvy and diverse dynamism.

Three days of ideas and connections

This event is a place for inspiration and for recognizing the incredible work championed by women and girls in all fields. Everyone -- not just women -- is welcome to gather in celebration of moving forward, boldly and brilliantly, while sharing the work of shaping our future.

Wednesday

Build expertise and relationships during small, curated workshops and custom experiences during the day. We’ll convene in the simulcast lounge and theater for the opening speaker session in the early evening, then celebrate with new and old friends at the welcome party.

Four riveting speaker sessions fill the day, with comfortable seating in the simulcast lounge and theater -- along with networking breaks and a community lunch. End the day with a convivial dinner and late-night hangouts under the stars.
