TEDxStMirasCollege is a local initiative that is aimed at sharing transformative ideas. It is a collection of thinkers, doers, creatives, innovators, explorers, visionaries and learners that are always looking to expand horizons, change perceptions, trigger action and foster new connections. Through the theme, we feel the need to address these topics, especially in a girl’s college. With the rise in the awareness and action for women empowerment, it is important for women to be courageous and bold enough to not only burst the little bubble they are in right now, and actively think about it. TEDxStMirasCollege actively recognizes the need for this at a local level
TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world. TED is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world. We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world.
TEDx is a grassroots initiative, created in the spirit of TED’s overall mission to research and discover “ideas worth spreading.” TEDx brings the spirit of TED to local communities around the globe through TEDx events. These events are organized by passionate individuals who seek to uncover new ideas and to share the latest research in their local areas that spark conversations in their communities. TEDx events include live speakers and recorded TED Talks, and are organized independently under a free license granted by TED. These events are not controlled by TED, but event organizers agree to abide by our format, and are offered guidelines for curation, speaker coaching, event organizing and more. More than 3000 events are now held annually.
