At TEDWomen 2016 we will ask the hard questions. Because isn't it about time: -To find long-term solutions to climate change, poverty, immigration, violence, race, gender and economic inequities? - To lead for different outcomes? - To challenge our "time-saving" technologies? - To pay full attention and be fully present for ourselves as well as others? Talks on topics such as: Body Time - Neuroscientist will talk about science of our body clocks. Time’s Up Talks - Sources of frustration; or areas where something needs to be changed. Together Time - an entire session will feature duets (partners in life, business, science, or discovery). Running Time - research of media impact on women. Reflections of Time/Time - Lapse Personal stories about resilience. Test of Time - Talks that will have increasing impact over time. "Its about time" - Time is personal. We all have the same amount of time — 24 hours a day and yet most of us feel we never have enough. Even with today’s latest inventions, technology, science, we can’t make time or stop time — or can we?Come explore time zones, time travel, time outs and times together. We will explore the conventions and challenges of time.

TED is an annual event that brings together the world’s leading thinkers and doers to share ideas that that matter in any discipline—technology, entertainment, design, science, humanities, business, development. At a TEDx event, speakers and TED Talks videos combine to spark deep discussion and connections. And in the spirit of “ideas worth spreading,” TED created TEDx, a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. The hope for TEDx is that it becomes a local forum for ideas within community that inspires people to change their lives, their futures and ultimately their world. The aim of TEDx events – and TEDxEsperanceWomen is to draw in people from all the different sectors and demographic of a community. To create a space and experiences that will be positive, memorable, and a catalyst for new ways of thinking and sharing ideas.
