Dr. Zimbardo is one of the most distinguished living psychologists, having served as President of the American Psychological Association, designed and narrated the award winning 26-part PBS series, Discovering Psychology, and has published more than 50 books and 400 professional and popular articles and chapters, among them, Shyness, The Lucifer Effect, and The Time Paradox. He is a Professor Emeritus at Stanford University and is best-known for his controversial Stanford Prison Experiment.

Dr. Zimbardo founded HIP to inspire ordinary people to trigger extraordinary social change, to foster the belief that we are all 'heroes in waiting', and that we all have the potential to act heroically when called upon to do so. Through this project, Dr. Zimbardo wants people to challenge these traditional notions: 1) You don't have to fight to be a hero, you can be a peace hero, 2) Heroic acts shouldn't be "extra ordinary" -- they can be acts that are performed all the time because our society expects it, and 3) Anyone can be a hero.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event:

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)
