3rd Annual TEDxWilmingtonWomen Conference

  • Friday, November 30th, 2018


Women all over the world are no longer accepting the status quo. They’re rising up, breaking out and pushing boundaries. Whatever their focus and talent — business, technology, art, science, politics — these pioneers and their allies are joining forces in an explosion of discovery and ingenuity to drive real, meaningful change.

TEDxWomen will celebrate how these dynamic and diverse people are showing up to face challenges head on, all while empowering each other to shape the future we all want to see. (Includes a livestream from TED)

There will be several sessions from 8 am to 5 pm, separated by one-hour breaks, as well as one streamed session from Palm Springs, California TEDWomen.

This year’s annual conference will showcase 28 speakers from around the world who will come to Wilmington to share their Ideas Worth Spreading in a TEDx talk. These speakers were selected from a list of over 200 speakers.
