Jessica Ladd is the founder of Sexual Health Innovations, an organization that uses technology to improve sexual health. SHI builds and rigorously evaluates tools that help empower people to make the sexual health and wellbeing decisions that are right for them and their community. SHI helps the organizations that serve them do what they do faster, better, and cheaper. A recent SHI project is the site So They Can Know which allows people to anonymously inform their partners if they may be at risk of infection of a sexually transmitted disease. Jessica lives in Baltimore and also works with The Social Innovation Lab.

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)
