For those who missed it, here’s a re-cap of TEDxWaterlooWomen 2012 in pictures, video and blogs. Called “The Space Between”, the conference was held as part of the TEDxWomen event which attracted 10,000 participants who spoke over 50 languages, at several locations around the globe.

Waterloo Region’s first TEDxWaterlooWomen was a huge success, drawing a large and appreciative audience to the venue at CIGI on December 1st, 2012.  Besides livestreaming portions of the main event from Washington, DC, TEDxWaterlooWomen featured several inspiring local speakers including  Carol Leaman, Elizabeth Monier-Williams and Dr. Shohini Ghose.

 

 

Yes, there were several men in the crowd. In fact as Jon Corbin, the hip-hop and spoken word artist who entertained us with such poetic eloquence, tweeted:

“It is astounding how many amazing women were at #TEDxWaterlooWomen today. It behooves men to take part in stuff like this to observe & learn.”

Here’s a look at highlights of the day. If you missed TEDxWaterlooWomen, I hope you’ll also be inspired by this collection of speaker videos. They truly present a lot of “ideas worth sharing.”

The next events, TEDxWaterloo as well as TEDxYouth@Waterloo will be held on March 27, 2013.
