In December 2010, Amsterdam hosted one of the first TEDxWomen-events in the world. TEDxWomen is a global conference that provides a stage for women to inspire; it specifically focuses on the unique way  in which women contribute to global change and thus helps to reshape the future.

Since the first event, TEDxAmsterdamWomen has annually produced and delivered a stunning and inspiring conference, bringing forth well-known and critically acclaimed speakers such as Mei Lin Ang, Steve McCurry, Mariéme Jamme, Harriette Verweij, Naomi Feil, Sarah Britton, Corrine Vigreux and many more.

TEDxAmsterdamWomen events are not subsidized and are run on the enthusiasm of our sponsors and a large group of professional volunteers who dedicate their time and energy to set up this event, acting as personal ambassadors for change and innovation.
