Theme 2018 : BE THE CHANGE!

“Be the Change You Wish to See in the World”

Does Ghandi’s quote resonate with you? If so, we invite you to partake in this workshop-stye experience where we will discover our inner truths. In doing so, we will gain more awareness of how we show up to face personal challenges, while empowering each other to shape the future we want to see.

We will join forces with Yael Gutner, Karen McGrath, and Marianne Chivi, three well-respected therapists, along with Sarah-Maya Côté Jirik, a Certified Facilitator of Byron Katie’s The Work, for a day of personal discovery. We will entertain introspective questions that will encourage us to rise up, break out, and push boundaries in a quest for inner growth and collective change.

We will stream one session of TEDWomen 2018.

Please note that unlike our previous events, this will not be a series of formal TEDx talks.

Additionally, the venue prohibits eating and drinking in the auditorium. As such, no food will be served during the event.

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.
