TEDWomen : Seattle Stream

How are women shaping the future? TED is answering that question, in cooperation with The Paley Center for Media, with an inaugural event, TEDWomen. The event, being held in Washington, D.C. on Dec 7-8, is being streamed.

We are holding an informal “drop-in and watch party” at ThinkSpace in Redmond, with facilities for up to 50 attendees.

During our conversation breaks, we will have a chance to network but we will also have short sessions led by local women.

If you are interested in attending, please send email to kegill at gmail please complete our Google registration form and indicate which day/time you would attend. There may be a small donation request for coffee. We have not decided what to do for lunch, since our logical lunch breaks are concurrent with streamed sessions!
