Inspiring talks spark vibrant conversations. Interesting people spark new connections. New experiences spark future innovations. Ignite your spark of ingenuity and join us for TEDxDesMoinesWomen on Thursday, December 5, 2013.
We've split TEDxDesMoinesWomen into two opportunities this year, based on feedback from past events. Come for a lunchtime livestream of the main TEDWomen event, broadcasting from San Francisco, then have the opportunity to tour Dress for Success, a nonprofit dedicated to empowering women. Hear live speakers in the evening, at a session that puts the ideas of local women on the stage and participate in interactive activities designed to introduce you to other attendees and expand the experience.

When & Where
TEDxDesMoines is designed to break down the silos separating business, technology, arts, education, government, and all other barriers to innovation in Des Moines. Our leadership team is composed entirely of volunteers that are looking to build a sense of community around big ideas and innovation in the metro.
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.)
