TEDWomen is a TED event curated by TED that focuses on women and women’s issues. TEDxWomen events are TEDx events that follow the live webcast of TEDWomen, and also feature live and local speakers. Our event is called TEDxDelthorneWomen and we are one of the many TEDx events that will happen around the world on November 30th. We will expand upon the ideas brought up at TEDWomen, while also relating it back to the Women of Los Angeles. TEDxDelthorneWomen was organized by Eraina Ferguson, a tech entrepreneur and journalist. Never miss a talk! SUBSCRIBE to the TEDx channel: http://bit.ly/1FAg8hB 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) Martine Kalaw is an author, speaker and spokeswoman on current immigration laws and reform.
