In December 2010, Amsterdam hosted one of the first TEDxWomen-events in the world. TEDxWomen is a global conference that provides a stage for women to inspire; it specifically focuses on the unique way in which women contribute to global change and thus helps to reshape the future.
In the Netherlands, a large group of professional volunteers dedicate their time and energy to set up this event, acting as personal ambassadors for change and innovation. Since the first event in 2010, TEDxAmsterdamWomen has annually produced and delivered a stunning and inspiring conference, bringing forth well-known and critically acclaimed speakers such as Mei Lin Ang, Steve McCurry, Mariéme Jamme, Harriette Verweij, Naomi Feil, Sarah Britton, Corrine Vigreux, Olivia Bee, Lex Peters, Kelly Cutrone, Paul Zak, Marieke Eyskoot, Bénédicte Ficq and Lauren Zander.
TEDxAmsterdamWomen events are not subsidized and are run on the enthusiasm of our sponsors and volunteers.
