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.
Here’s what’s in each workshop
The 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.

Beware 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.
Good 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.
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.
