“Women are proving vital to the engine room of the UK’s economic recovery with more than 13.9m now in work; more than ever before. And, if women were setting up and running new businesses at the same rate as men, there could be one million more women entrepreneurs.
“It’s more vital than ever that we challenge perceptions around the role of women and the barriers that can limit them. That’s why events like TEDxWhitehallWomen are crucial. We need to inspire the next generation to achieve their full potential to ensure that we have more female role models in years to come.”
TEDxWhitehallWomen will explore the theme ‘Invented Here’ and speakers will be invited to explore how women and girls are reshaping the future.
We’ll hear from women who are innovating in business, social enterprise and government; and women who have re-invented themselves or their organisations. Participants will come away with ideas, inspiration and connections to help them in their personal and professional lives.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 26 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives.
"Congratulations Ruth and your team on a very successful event. All the ingredients for a successful event came together: great venue, inspirational and authentic speakers, an eclectic group of women open to connecting, sharing, lots of laughter, tears, stories and great food and wine. As we departed a little gift of the handbag holder as a sweet and practical memento. I found the day engaging and inspirational. Thank you."
