Three days of ideas and connections

A chance to co-create an unforgettable gathering of minds and souls determined to play our part. The conference will unfold as follows:


December 1

Build expertise and make connections during intimate, curated workshops and custom experiences during the day — your opportunity to dive deeper into a topic of interest or learn something completely new. Come together for the opening speaker session in the early evening, then celebrate with new friends at the welcome party.


December 2

The second day is overflowing with TED Talks — four speaker sessions will fill the day, along with opportunities to network during breaks and a community lunch. End off with a convivial dinner followed by a late-night hangout.


December 3

The last day of TEDWomen is the climax of the speaker program, summing up and celebrating the conference. It’s followed by a farewell picnic to cement your new connections. Everything wraps up in time for you to explore beautiful Palm Springs in the afternoon.
