TED­Wo­men is a three-day con­fer­ence about the power of women and girls to be cre­at­ors and change-makers. The pro­gram brings togeth­er a glob­al com­munity of women and men inter­ested in explor­ing how change begins: with innov­at­ive thinkers who cata­lyse ideas toward action. Over the past few years, TED­Wo­men and TEDx­Wo­men have launched power­ful ideas into the world.

TEDx­Can­ber­ra­Wo­men is for loc­al people of all genders to come togeth­er to view exclus­ive streamed con­tent, fresh from the TED­Wo­men Stage, and par­ti­cip­ate in inter­act­ive work­shops led by loc­al experts with an interest in sup­port­ing women’s poten­tial.

We’ve worked hard with spe­cial mem­bers of our com­munity, includ­ing past speak­ers, part­ners, past attendees and one of our own speak­er coaches to develop these work­shops as an added bene­fit to you.

When you register for TEDx­Can­ber­ra­Wo­men on Event­brite, you’ll be asked to choose which work­shop you’ll attend.

lisa_sqThe Art of Replen­ish­ment with Lisa LaMaitre

Lisa is the Cre­at­or of Can­ber­ra Wise Women and Man­aging Dir­ect­or of Ther­apy Mas­ters. With over 19 years in the health industry, Lisa has spent the last five focused on her heal­ing and know­ledge growth. Lisa is pas­sion­ate about edu­cat­ing her cli­ents on how their bod­ies move, func­tion and heal.

Lisa has been on her own heal­ing jour­ney after a career end­ing injury in 2008 stopped her from con­tinu­ing to treat cli­ents. Then after one of her busi­nesses was tar­geted for crime, she faced the after effects of chron­ic stress, fatigue, and post-trau­mat­ic stress.

Hear more about her incred­ible jour­ney as she shares resources and insights that helped her recov­er from being phys­ic­ally, emo­tion­ally and spir­itu­ally exhausted.

jana_sqLifelong learn­ing – Learn, unlearn, relearn with Jana Cly­de

Are you a lifelong learner? Are you per­petu­ally curi­ous? Are you look­ing to make the most of your poten­tial?

Thanks to research into neuro­plas­ti­city and how we learn, the out­dated con­cept of learn­ing only hap­pen­ing in a classroom is chan­ging. Come and explore con­tin­ued growth through lifelong learn­ing, gain insights, and take away tools to help you engage with and retain inform­a­tion effect­ively.

Facil­it­at­or, busi­ness own­er and lifelong learner Jana Cly­de from Wis­dom Learn­ing will lead this enga­ging, eye open­ing and high energy ses­sion.

ginger_sqBeware of the Trolls with Ginger Gor­man

Would you know what to do if you were trolled? In 2013, Ginger Gor­man and her fam­ily became the tar­get of an orches­trated online hate cam­paign.

When the fear sub­sided, the mul­ti-award win­ning social justice journ­al­ist star­ted won­der­ing: Who are these trolls? What do they want? So she went out to meet and inter­view ser­i­ous trolls. 

Now she believes any­one who is online – espe­cially women – needs to arm them­selves again­st cyber­bul­lies. In this work­shop, Ginger will delve into the psy­cho­logy of trolls and give you sim­ple tips to deal with them. She’ll put trolling in a wider con­text and dis­cuss the gaps in work­place train­ing, law enforce­ment and where social media com­pan­ies are going wrong.

hc-carrie-graf_sqGood Sports with Jocelyn Mara, Heather Reid and Car­rie Graf

In this facil­it­ated sem­in­ar, you’ll hear from three Can­ber­ra women who have ded­ic­ated their lives to women’s sport. We’ll explore the issues and oppor­tun­it­ies for women ath­letes, their sport­ing codes, and the pro­fes­sion­als who sup­port them.

Jocelyn Mara is a lec­turer and research­er in sports ana­lyt­ics at the Uni­ver­sity of Can­ber­ra, work­ing in the field of per­form­ance ana­lyt­ics, with a spe­cial interest in sup­port­ing elite women ath­letes. Heather Reid pion­eered women’s foot­ball in Can­ber­ra and is highly regarded for her con­tri­bu­tion to the devel­op­ment of the game. Car­rie Graf recently ended her suc­cess­ful ten­ure as coach of the Uni­ver­sity of Can­ber­ra Cap­it­als, Canberra’s most suc­cess­ful pro­fes­sion­al sport­ing team ever. Car­rie has made a sub­stan­tial con­tri­bu­tion to bas­ket­ball through a life­time of ser­vice and ded­ic­a­tion.  

All three women will offer insights into their own per­son­al career jour­neys, and what they see as the big issues and oppor­tun­it­ies for women in sport. You’ll have the oppor­tun­ity to ask your own ques­tions and par­ti­cip­ate in what is sure to be a lively and enga­ging dis­cus­sion.    

About TED­Wo­men

TED­Wo­men 2016 “It’s About Time” is described by TED as fol­lows:

In plan­ning for TED­Wo­men 2016, we asked our com­munity: What mat­ters to you now? And in emails and com­ments and even draw­ings from TEDx­Wo­men organ­isers and our net­work of long­time attendees, one power­ful theme emerged: time.

Time is per­son­al. We all have the same amount of time — 24 hours a day and yet most of us feel we nev­er have enough. Even with today’s latest inven­tions, tech­no­logy, sci­ence, we can’t make time or stop time — or can we?

Come explore time zones, time travel, time outs and times togeth­er. We will explore the con­ven­tions and chal­lenges of time.

We will ask the hard ques­tions. Because isn’t it about time:

  • To find long-term solu­tions to cli­mate change, pover­ty, immig­ra­tion, viol­ence, race, gender and eco­nom­ic inequit­ies?
  • To lead for dif­fer­ent out­comes?
  • To chal­lenge our “time-sav­ing” tech­no­lo­gies?
  • To pay full atten­tion and be fully present for ourselves as well as oth­ers.
