WHERE: Touhill Performing Arts Center: 1 Touhill Cir, St. Louis MO 63121

Friday, October 27, 2023 – 2:30PM-5:30PM CST

We all know that when it comes to global gender equity, there’s still a great deal of work to be done. It’s time to reset, rethink, and collectively imagine different ways forward. 

This year we’ll joyfully celebrate those taking bold strides into the future, working unapologetically to make big dreams become reality. Whether working on new models of equity and inclusion or blazing trails as pioneers, this event’’s speakers demonstrate luminous new thinking and ideas designed to enchant, uplift, and inspire us all.

Come be inspired as our speakers share ideas worth spreading: the extraordinary work of an ordinary 14-year-old kid, a solution that practically eliminates recidivism from an ex-prisoner, surprising truths about sustainable fashion, and methods to elevate your career through leadership. You’re also invited to sit back and enjoy St. Louis home-grown entertainment.

Arrive early to experience Innovation Alley where you’ll learn about local innovators whose ideas are positively shifting the landscape of our community. This is a powerful space where ideas and conversations go at least two steps forward – creating impact, new opportunities, and stronger connections.

Speaking of connections, be sure to stay after the event to mix and mingle with women business owners, leaders, peers, and other curious-minded people like you! There will be snacks, beverages, AND opportunities to meet the amazing speakers who informed, inspired, and challenged you from our stage.

This event will take place at the Touhill Performing Arts Center, a landmark performance facility located on the UMSL campus. There is ample parking.

About TEDxStLouis

TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDx events, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

The mission of TEDxStLouis is to create an inclusive and equitable community of forever learners in the St. Louis region. We focus on curating TED-oriented thought-leaders and topics that have an intrinsic connection to the St. Louis region & may not be broadly known or understood by most St. Louisans. We provide the community with events, connections, and ongoing information that will help them propel the St. Louis region to greater vibrancy and prosperity. 

We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives, and, ultimately, the world. Our community will build a clearinghouse of free knowledge from the region’s most inspired thinkers — and a consortium of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other, both online and at TEDx events all year long.
