About TEDxSingapore TEDxSingaporeWomen was TEDxSingapore's 13th event since 2009 and was a collaborative event with TEDxWomen in New York and Los Angeles and over 80 TEDx events across the globe. Dynamic and passionate local TEDxSingaporeWomen speakers and artistes shared their ideas, talents and endeavours with Singapore and the world. These are women who challenge what you think you know with their experiences, their accomplishments and their insights. An activist on how something as basic as access to proper sanitation can change the course of a life. A martial artist on how to overcome stereotypes and live your passion - and kick butt while you're at it, and other women who are making a difference. The evening ended with a Think+Eat+Drink Party, with lots of mixing and mingling among thinkers and doers, visionaries, passionate people of the TED community in Singapore. TEDxSingapore brings people together to seek a deeper understanding of ourselves and our world, and to inspire ideas and action for a better future for us all. Founded in April 2009, we are 100% Community-Created.

At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
