TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.
We have scoured the body of wonderful TED Talks presented around the world, and have chosen to share this group of talks. Presented by wise women on a broad range of topics, these talks are insightful, brilliant and intriguing – and they will challenge you to re-examine your thinking. If you have not previously discovered the world of TED – you are in for a treat.
