TEDxUCLWomen 2017 | Home

Sunday 5 November
The People’s Palace, Queen Mary University London, Mile End Road

TedxUCLWomen is a movement celebrating the remarkable achievements of women and girls at UCl and in the wider community, whilst also looking at the barriers preventing women and girls from achieving their full potential, providing a platform for those attemtping to break these barriers down. This year’s theme is HOME, in all its interpretations.

TedxUCLWomen is in its fourth year, continuing to offer a space for individuals from a range of different fields to captivate and inspire with their words. We’ve been hard at work curating a whole day of workshops, talks, food and entertainment for you and cannot wait to share the details.

Theme: This year we have given our event the theme of ‘Home’. Such a broad theme conjures endless avenues for interpretation, most notably community, belonging, race, class, comfort, alienation, temporal and geographical familiarity or displacement and so much more. There is no doubt we will have some amazing talks this year – our incredible range of speakers promise to broaden our perspectives, understand the perspectives of other and generally enrich our thinking about what ‘home’ is.

There will be hundreds of TedxWomen events taking place around the world this November and we will be hosting a 90 minute livestream of this year’s TedWomen talk during our event. TedxUCLWomen is a part of a GLOBAL movement and you have the chance to be a part of it.
