2023 – TEDx Women!

TEDWomen is a conference about the power of women to be creators and change-makers

TEDxWolverhampton Women is the locally organised event following the global TEDWomen event and aims to showcase the amazing and remarkable women in and around Wolverhampton. However, we do accept speakers from further afield if we believe what you have to share will make a truly powerful impact on the women attending our event.

We all know that when it comes to global gender equity, there’s still so much work to be done. After all, the playing field is far from level — and the past few years have seen so many women forced to step back or out altogether. It’s time to reset, to rethink, to collectively imagine different ways forward. As such, this year’s TEDWomen conference will joyfully celebrate those taking bold strides into the future, those working unapologetically to make big dreams become reality. 

Whether working directly on new models of equity and inclusion or blazing trails as pioneers within their own professions, this year’s speakers demonstrate luminous new thinking and ideas designed to enchant, uplift and inspire us all. Come join us for this journey that begins with not one but … Two Steps Forward

When he heard talk of a TEDxWolverhampton, he immediately knew this was something he’d like to be involved in. His favourite TED talks include Sir Ken Robinson’s ‘Do Schools Kill Creativity?’ and Amanda Palmer’s ‘The Art of Asking’.

The opportunity to be involved in bringing TEDx to Wolverhampton, a place James has called home for 13 years and somewhere he loves, but feels suffers from a perception problem was too good to turn down.

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

Our event is called TEDxWolverhampton, where x = independently organized TED event.

At our event, TED Talks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.


Sat 20th July 2024, Arena Theatre
