On Thursday, December 5th, 2013 at PLUSH, TEDxGatewayArch will host an event for women called SISTERS. As the description reads: “Biological or not, sisters uplift us, challenge us, inspire Us, and help shape us.” You may be asking yourself: “What (or who?) is TED?” TED is a nonprofit devoted to “Ideas Worth Spreading” which started in 1984 as a conference to bring together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then, its scope has become ever broader and it is exciting to have our own version here in St. Louis. The 18-minute energy-filled presentations feature thought-provoking ideas, artistic expressions, and emerging concepts.
I am honored to be the emcee of the TEDxGatewayArch Women’s Event on December 5th. Though the event is now sold out, the organizers (who are all volunteers) are working to make it possible for you to view the program online – and will provide all the details on the TEDxGatewayArch.org website.
As the holidays come bearing down, the brunt of the stress most often falls on women. The expectations are always so high and the list so long. And heaven forbid we would ever want to disappoint and not have the perfect holiday! Is that even possible? Do something for yourself and a girlfriend, or a sister. Make this a night for yourselves to kick off the busy season. It will be the best gift you can give yourself!
Again, while the event is sold out, LIKE TEDxGatewayArch on Facebook (or watch for more information at www.tedxgatewayarch.org) and get the latest news as soon as we get the broadcast (and post-event broadcast) details together. Be sure to mark your 2014 calendar for the first TEDxGatewayArch event of 2014 – taking place on January 11 at the Sheldon. Just can’t get enough TED?
