He believes the more interconnected science is, the stronger it becomes. Jamie advocates for more diversity in scientific approaches, but, more importantly, diversity in scientists. He talks about how gender-stereotyped toys influence children's career choices, what must be done to diversify the face of science, and how diversity connects with success.
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)
