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.
What to expect from TEDWomen 2019
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.
The last day of TEDWomen always holds surprises in the final speaker session. It’s followed by a farewell picnic to cement your new connections. Everything wraps up in time for you to explore beautiful Palm Springs in the afternoon.
The TED community actively seeks new members who are leaders in their field and who can make a strong contribution. We review each application in detail, and look forward to reading yours. TEDWomen 2019 will be an event not to be missed! Questions? Send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.

With the snow-capped Santa Rosa Mountains as its backdrop, our venue, La Quinta Resort & Club has been a desert getaway since opening in the 1920s.
