Join us for an evening of ideas worth spreading as TEDxSalemWomen hosts a screening of TEDWomen 2017: Bridges, which takes place Nov. 1-3 in New Orleans, LA.
We will host two screenings: Session 2: Design (5:30 p.m.) and Session 3: Connect (7:45 p.m.)
TEDxSalemWomen is a free, ticketed event. All attendees must register for a free ticket for each session. For guaranteed seating, each ticket holder must check in 15 minutes prior to the event.
**Please note: This event is a screening of the TEDWomen event in New Orleans. There will be no live speakers.**
We build them, we cross them, and sometimes we even burn them… at TEDWomen 2017, we will explore the many aspects of this year’s theme: Bridges, through curated TED Talks, community dinners and activities throughout one of America’s most beloved cities, New Orleans. We are excited to be convening TEDWomen 2017 in the historic Orpheum Theatre in New Orleans, with plans to capture the unique attractions that make this city one of the most visited in the US.
At this time of deep divides and rising global challenges, we will hear TED Talks from entrepreneurs, innovators, artists and activists, thought leaders from business and civil society—bridge builders from around the world.
