Venue: JB’s Bar and Grill, Maitama Amusement park off IBB way, Maitama Abuja.


What is TEDWomen?

On December 7 and 8, 2010, TEDWomen will gather five hundred global thought leaders, innovators and storytellers in Washington, DC, to watch enlightening speakers and connect with a global community of women and men. The cross-disciplinary and cross-generational program will focus on how women think and work, communicate and collaborate, learn and lead. The program will explore what this means and why it matters to all of us. The vision for TEDWomen@Abuja is unlike any other “Women” conference. One of our key objectives is to hear from female voices around the country and the world at large; investigating the major challenges facing women and how can these be resolved?  We, TEDxAbuja,  TAN (Think African Network) and Agencies concerned with women empowerment and Gender equality and development, are essential to achieving these goals. TEDxWomen Live web Cast will be viewed here in Abuja on December 7th and 8th, 2010, at JB’s Bar and Grill, by fifty selected guests running from 8.00p m to 10:30pm each day(additional 2:30 to 7pm for the second day the 8th) . The theme of this TEDWomen event is ‘HOW ARE WOMEN AND GIRLS RESHAPING THE FUTURE?’. At this event, live stream videos from TEDWOMEN will be offered to attendees, and TEDTalks video   will combine to spark deep discussion and connections to mark this drive towards empowering women and promoting Gender equality. TED invites men and women to explore this question in depth: From the developing world, where a single micro-loan to a single girl can transform a village; to the West, where generations of educated women are transforming entire industries. This diverse international program takes a long look at women through the lens of change agent, intellectual innovator and idea champion. Our TEDx event; is operated under a license from TED. Note:
