Celeste Mergens is the Founder and Executive Director of Days for Girls International. Days for Girls was born in an "ah-ha moment," after an event in the slums of Kenya prompted the idea for a simple and sustainable solution to reversing the cycles of poverty and violence for women. Today, just five years later, Days for Girls International empowers girls, women and communities in 60 nations on six continents.

Celeste invites the world to join Days for Girls and its rapidly expanding international network in an audacious goal to create a global contagion of empowerment for every girl and woman. Everywhere. Period. By 2022.

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)
