    In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

  2. Why the US needs Paid Family Leave: TEDxSMU

    We need women to work, and we need working women to have babies. So why is America one of the only countries in the world that offers no national paid leave to new working mothers? In this incisive talk, Jessica Shortall makes the impassioned case that the reality of new working motherhood in America is both hidden and horrible: millions of women, every year, are forced back to work within just weeks of giving birth. Her idea worth spreading: the time has come for us to recognize the economic, physical and psychological costs of our approach to working mothers and their babies, and to secure our economic future by providing paid leave to all working parents.

  3. Atomic Living: Kiran Gandhi at TEDxBrooklyn

    Kiran Gandhi currently drums on tour with artist MIA and is pursuing her MBA at Harvard. She grew up in Manhattan and started drumming when she was 12. After graduating from Georgetown University, she played percussion for Thievery Corporation and founded DC’s first all-women’s drumming festival called Rad Ladies That Drum. She then moved to LA and secured a full-time position for herself as Interscope Records’ first and only "analyst". The job entailed harnessing patterns in iTunes, Spotify, YouTube and other music data to inform digital marketing strategy and improve the label’s artist forecasting tools.

  4. Why I heart the Bookternet Rachel Fershleiser at TEDxGowanus

    "At your average book publisher, 10 years ago was a time before the internet." Rachel Fershleiser is now working on Tumblr’s outreach team, helping authors and publishers reach new audiences. But when she started in traditional book publishing, a job like hers really didn’t exist. Rachel takes us through an evolution from reading and writing as entirely "solitary pursuits" to the development of online tools that enable collaboration and community. She shares great stories and innovations that connect readers and writers like never before.
