What is TEDxAmsterdam Women?
There are many avenues to make the world a more equal and equitable place. The concept behind TED is to share ideas that are eye opening and make you think; that make you see something slightly differently, to then spread that idea, creating awareness and from there change will happen.
TEDxAmsterdam Women organizes events in Amsterdam that provide people of any gender, from all walks of life, with the stage to inspire with original ideas worth spreading: ideas that help, support, empower and impact women in society and the workplace, with the long-term purpose to increase equality of all aspects.
This change can not be created by one person alone, but it happens because people see how others are starting to put their ideas into action. This inspires others to create new ideas and make more changes. Our stage is a safe place where this awareness starts and step by step, together, we will achieve our equality goals.
We are a team of professional and motivated women and men who dedicate their free time and energy to make a difference with the help of our sponsors. Working together, we support each other, promoting ideas to support you, the public, to live in a more equal and balanced environment.
