TEDxTC brings the spirit and energy of TED and adds a decidedly local flavor, featuring talks from some of the Twin Cities’ best and brightest.
On December 1st, TEDxTC will explore “The Space Between,” an event in which local female thought leaders will take the stage to highlight their exciting ideas, from 'seeing the future' to 'understanding the new American dream.'
Taking the TEDxTC stage are:

She is the author of Think Like a Futurist: Know What Changes, What Doesn't, and What's Next and the founder of The Push Institute, a non-profit think tank that tracks significant global trends and their implications for business, government, and non-profit sectors over the next 5-10-25-50 years.
Rev. Peg Chemberlin: A contagious ecumenical passion and voracious desire to bring individuals together in spite of their differences has guided Rev. Canon Peg Chemberlin during her 17 years as Executive Director of the Minnesota Council of Churches. In a recent effort to increase empathy within the local community, Chamberlin launched the Respectful Conversations Project, leading thought-provoking conversations on the values guiding an individual’s decision-making for the proposed Minnesota Marriage Amendment.
Janis LaDouceur: An architect and Adjunct Assistant Professor at the University of Minnesota’s College of Design.
