111 Minna, 111 Minna, San Francisco
Nkechi was invited to perform Sojourner Truth's "Aint I a Woman" speech at TEDxFiDiWomen 2012.
TEDxFiDiWomen is an individually organized TEDx event taking place in San Francisco and held in conjunction with TEDxWomen in Washington DC on November 30th, 2012. This event brings together female leaders, thinkers and doers to share real ideas and solutions to issues impacting women worldwide.
After a successful first event last year, which was measurably the largest global TEDx women's event to date, we're producing a second event scheduled for November 30, 2012 from 11-9pm at 111 Minna Gallery in San Francisco.
Last year, our talks (and sponsors) reached over 150,000 views in under one month’s time alone, and the number continues to grow everyday. You can view the 2011 event talks here: http://bit.ly/TEDxFiDiWomen.
This year, the event is themed “The Space Between” and will address both the literal and figurative space between fact and fiction, poverty and plenty, IQ & EQ, perception and reality, and the past, present and future of generations.
For more information about the general theme please review this link http://tedxwomen.org/schedule-2012/. We already proud to host the following leaders and will continue adding to the lineup, regularly.
