What is TED?

TED is an annual event where some of the world’s leading thinkers and doers are invited to share what they are most passionate about. “TED” stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design, three broad subject areas that are, collectively, shaping our future. And in fact, the event is broader still, showcasing ideas that matter in any discipline.

The diverse audience (CEOs, scientists, creatives, philanthropists) is almost as extraordinary as the speakers, who have included Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Frank Gehry, PaulSimon, Sir Richard Branson, Philippe Starck and Bono.

TED was first held in Monterey, California, in 1984. In 2001, Chris Anderson’s Sapling Foundation acquired TED from its founder, Richard Saul Wurman. In recent years, TED has expanded to include an international conference in UK, TEDGlobal; media initiatives, including TED Talks and TED.com; and the TED Prize.

What is TEDx ?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx Barcelona is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxBarcelona Women, where x = independently organized TED event.

At our TEDxBarcelona Women we combine live speakers related to the city of Barcelona (“Breakthroughs made in Barcelona”) and TEDTalks videos, to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.

The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized and non-profit.

TEDWomen 2015: Momentum

Monterey, CA

May 27-29, 2015

Momentum. Moving forward. Gaining speed. Building traction.

At TEDWomen 2015, we’ll explore the bold ideas that create momentum in how we think, live and work. From the young scientist revealing a breakthrough discovery to the activist who methodically transformed how the world thinks about women. From the veteran CEO whose trade secrets turn organizations around to the athlete whose extraordinary comeback shocked the world.
