TEDxCMUQatar - Bernardine Dias - Breaking Boundaries in Underserved Communities using Technology

Rachel Morris is a writer, editor and communications specialist living and working in Qatar. Rachel has more than 18 years experience in journalism and communications in Australia and the Middle East and in a galaxy far, far away was Managing Editor of a daily newspaper in Doha (the first woman to do so). Becoming a journalist after realizing archaeology involved a lot of dirt and not much glamor, Rachel now writes for a range of newspapers and magazines in Qatar and overseas and is often called on to comment about the Middle East. She has also authored two books about Australian politics and is working on her third. Rachel is a hopeless devotee of Twitter and loves to travel to destinations that scare her mother as well as watch really appalling reality TV shows. TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 25 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives.

TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Al Gore, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani,Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende and UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. The annual TED Conference takes place in Long Beach, California, with simulcast in Palm Springs; TEDGlobal is held each year in Oxford, UK. TED's media initiatives include TED.com, where new TEDTalks are posted daily, and the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as the ability for any TEDTalk to be translated by volunteers worldwide. TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world are given the opportunity to put their wishes into action; TEDx, which offers individuals or groups a way to host local, self-organized events around the world, and the TEDFellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to become part of the TED community and, with its help, amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
