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

    All too commonly, we suppress the normal physiology of a healthy digestive tract with our daily habits and medications. In doing so, we lose a precious opportunity to extract the greatest nutrition from our food, and we continue to suffer from common, but not normal, digestive complaints. How do we return to normal digestive physiology, and why is this an important pursuit? Learn More

    When we look at ourselves in the mirror, what do we see? A distorted picture of us by our constant idea of perfection. It's time to be kind with ourselves and feel beautiful in our own skin. Learn More

    Demands on our lives are growing more complex. In a search for meaning, many of us respond by filling every still moment with more activity, mining our ability to create something new. How can we heal the tension between Movement and Stillness and give rise to more creative and life-affirming leadership at work or at home? Learn More

    We inherently, subconsciously do not like to see another human being in pain. When we experience natural disasters, we rally around each other. Why, then, do we feel so divided at other times? What allows these divisions to dissolve? How can the awareness of the intrinsic oneness of humanity lead us to more unification? Learn More

    We all face obstacles that at times seem insurmountable. How can we transform these experiences into powerful leadership assets?

    Navigating the world as a teenage girl should be an Olympic sport- the hurdles we have to face every day are enormous and relentless. With every passing day we are thrown new expectations, and we carry them on our backs like heavy backpacks wherever we go, with the belief that in order to survive society, we have to play by the rules of its prejudice. But what if we... Learn More

    When you think of someone who sexually assaults, what comes to mind? A stranger in a dark alley, your best friend, or your lover? Our current culture fails to keep us accountable at stopping sexual assault by depicting perpetrators as the "monsters in dark alleyways" and hides how everyone is capable of sexual assault. Only when we and our institutions recognize that sexual assault is SO much more than... Learn More

    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

    Displays are everywhere. On average, we spend more than 5 hours per day in front of different displays. Are there physiological impacts beyond just tired eyes? Can we categorize these negative impacts as health problems caused by technology? Are there any technological solutions for this technological flaw? Learn More

    Laurie Betito

    It’s time, we, as women, take ownership of our pleasure, as it is the right of every human being. But doing that requires that we let go of shame, get to know our bodies, recognize that we are more “normal” than we think, and shift our attitudes about to sex. 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.
