TEDxAmsterdamWomen proudly presents our eighth annual conference: Bridging the Gap.

On December 6th 2018, at the KIT Royal Tropical Institute in Amsterdam, we will live stream TEDx talks in front of an audience of over 400 people. Guaranteed to be thought-provoking and inspiring, this highly anticipated event will see critically acclaimed speakers take to the stage to share their ‘ideas worth spreading’. Our TEDxAmsterdamWomen speakers are diverse, yet they all have one thing in common: they are making a difference when it comes to Bridging the Gap.

 

Bridging the Gap

Do we still need feminism? The gender gap proves we do. Indicators in health, politics, economics and education show the gap is widening. Women -- and men -- around the world are taking action, raising their voices in a wave of protest. Change is coming. It’s time for equal pay and equal say. It’s time for a world that reflects women, too. Inequality won’t disappear overnight, but we can make strides when we band together. By sharing big ideas that spark a fire in others, we’re creating a movement -- idea by idea, woman by woman. Join the conversation and get inspired!

Pitch Night

We are opening the stage to new, undiscovered “ideas worth spreading,” and looking for ideas that focus on women’s issues and make an impact.

We’re seeking out the game changers, local heroes and rebels; the women (and men) working hard to change their community and the world. 

Never spoken on the big stage? We want to provide you with a platform to help your message reach the masses, and ensure you are truly seen and heard.

Ready to take the stage?

TEDxAmsterdamWomen

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.

Startup Award

After the smashing success of the previous Startup Award, TEDxAmsterdamWomen will once again offer a stage to inspiring and high-potential startups. On September 24th, 2018 eleven promising startups will have the opportunity to pitch their idea in front of a jury of specialists, investors, press and consultants.  It’s a chance to showcase your idea(s), garner feedback, and generate awareness.
