What to expect?

Our 2023 TEDxCalgaryWomen edition will be shorter: only 2 hours long!

  • This will be a much smaller, intimate event — and tickets will be (very) limited! 
  • Unlike our usual talk experiences, we will host a salon event format, welcoming brilliant female leaders from different industries in Calgary, to kick-off a deep salon conversation.
  • And, it doesn't stop there! You can expect different activities and lots of great, meaningful connections throughout the event.
  • Light refreshments will be provided 

"Who is TEDxCalgary Women for?" you might be wondering... And the answer is: we will open the stage to inspiring women from our community in Calgary, but the event is for EVERYONE!

Everyone who:

- Believes in the power of ideas worth spreading

- Wishes to engage in deep conversations and meaningful connections

- Believes in the power of collective action

- Believes in people's impact into creating a better society

Join the TEDxCalgaryWomen team and other fascinating Calgarians on this to amplify and accelerate ideas that build a better, more equitable future for all.

Yes, and...

Yes, and...

New connections. Deep conversations.

It's a volatile, complex world out there, full of ambiguity and divisiveness. How do we work together to nurture a culture of civil, foward-looking conversation?

For us, we start with "Yes," when someone shares a long-cherished idea with us. That simple word acknowledges their courage in sharing with us, and opens up the space for us to take those ideas to a new level with our contribution of "and..." as we add our own insights and perspectives.

Over 350 participants joined our group of amazing speakers in the beautifully-remodelled Ampersand building in downtown Calgary as they shared their ideas to start the conversation rolling.

Talks are now being released via the TEDxTalks YouTube channel, so stay tuned as we update the speaker profiles to include links to their talks!
