This is an uncertain time. And yet, amid the physical, cultural and economic challenges affronting us at every level — from personal to global — now is the time to engage. TEDWomen 2020 is calling upon our collective fearlessness to create a global step forward together.

In this moment, diversity of ideas is more important than ever. As such, in collaboration with an incredible group of TEDx organizers and TEDWomen2020, TEDxBainbridgeIslandWomen: Still We Rise will help move the conversation about the power of women in a meaningful way by showcasing global talks alongside speakers from the Bainbridge Island community.
