Theme 2016 : It’s About Time!

Ti-i-i-ime is on our side… Or is it?  We all have 24 hours a day and yet most of us feel we never have enough.  How do we spend our time?  What are we doing with our time?

When decisions we make over time result in irreversible consequences, then time is no longer on our side.  Is it about time…

  • we find creative solutions to global issues such as climate change, poverty, race, gender and economic inequities ?
  • we find solutions to build stronger societies ?
  • we lead for different outcomes ?
  • we live our life with meaning ?
  • we reclaim ownership over the health of over our mind, body and spirit ?

Tick tock tick tock.

Life is short even though time is timeless.
Seize this moment to change.
It is in this moment that your entire future gets created.
Are you living this moment with your fullest presence and awareness?
Start now…  –Dr. Shefali

  • Wanda Bedard diffuseur tedx montreal women

    Women are half the world's population. How can a community or country succeed if only half of its citizens are educated? If we continue to fund education in the developing world in the same way we have been doing for the last 20 years, it will take another 100 years before all girls complete junior high. What is the solution? Learn More

What is TEDxMontrealWomen?

The TEDxMontrealWomen event challenges each and everyone of us, as members of society, to question and define our values and beliefs in an effort to create an awareness and understanding of why we behave as we do, what motivates our behaviors and what drives our decisions to conduct our lives as we do. With this increased consciousness, we discover that we are more empowered than we previously thought to make positive, disruptive and impactful changes in whichever spheres of influence we choose. TEDxMontrealWomen is an independently organized event and an integral part of the global TEDWomen community.

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 TEDxMontrealWomen, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxMontrealWomen event, TEDTalks 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.
