Rachel Bagby, J.D., a voice for life, has a Stanford law degree in Social Change. She works with leaders from organizations like Google and the Sierra Club to unleash the resounding force of nature inside of them so that they have more fun getting that next, big, earth-serving thing done.

Author of Divine Daughters: Liberating the Power and Passion of Women's Voices, Rachel originated a poetry form called Dekaaz, which condenses large amounts of information into ten syllables of sharable wisdom. She is growing a global community of Dekaazens from seeds she first planted at "Watershed," a Library of Congress conference hosted by former US Poet Laureate Robert Haas.

A founding member of Bobby McFerrin's touring ensemble, "Voicestra," Rachel uses improvisation techniques to amp up her audiences' presence and message, so that they increase their communicative power to transform the moment.
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)
