TEDxPlaceDesNationsWomen is a unique event, bringing people together around “ideas worth spreading”, in the form of short, impactful speeches and performances.

This year’s edition – “Empower” - will focus on women’s empowerment and gender equality. The 10 inspiring and passionate speakers, while covering a wide range of issues such as nuclear disarmament, domestic workers’ rights, acquiring digital skills, and Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), will come together to amplify the following ideas:

  • The United Nations and other international organizations in Geneva have an immense transformational and positive impact on people’s lives around the world, every day.
  • 2018, with the momentum created by the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, has become a milestone year for women’s empowerment.
  • When women are empowered, they do great things for their communities and society as a whole.
  • Whether they are entrepreneurs, medical doctors, politicians, historians or students, they all are remarkable agents of change. The event provides a unique setting to celebrate female difference-makers around the world, yesterday, today and tomorrow.
  • The most pressing challenges of our time can be solved when their talent and ideas are unlocked.
