TEDxPlaceDesNationsWomen – Empower
On 6 December 2018, the United Nations Office at Geneva and the UN Refugee Agency, in collaboration with seven partner organizations, will be hosting their third TEDx event, TEDxPlaceDesNationsWomen. This unique event will bring people together around “ideas worth spreading”, in the form of short, impactful speeches and performances.

With the global momentum created by the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, 2018 has become the year for women’s empowerment. TEDxPlaceDesNationsWomen will thus shine a spotlight on 11 inspiring speakers and women’s empowerment champions from all around the world.

Whether they are entrepreneurs, medical doctors, politicians, historians or students, they all are remarkable agents of change. The event will provide a unique setting to celebrate difference-makers around the world, yesterday, today and tomorrow.

Do you want to join the movement? Watch live on 6 December from 3:30 to 7:00 p.m.!
