Description

On October 26th, 2019, TEDxGeorgetown will host its 2019 Conference at Georgetown University inside Gaston Hall.

See our website tedxgeorgetown.org for parking info, full lineup, and other FAQ!

Our theme this year is Persist & Resist, which we hope will showcase the various paths that speakers can take to achieve their dreams or goals. Do we persist within existing pathways or do we rebel against the traditional modes of change and utilize creative tools to bring about change?

12 speakers, six students and six external, will take the stage and share their stories. Join us as we learn about how they persisted and resisted through challenges.
