New year.
New format.
Same inspiring content.


This complimentary and virtual event will center on the theme of Fearless – an idea that is exceedingly important during this time of apart-ness and physical, cultural and economic challenges. Don’t miss out on the chance to hear remarkable talks, watch stories of “Women Who Dare” and call upon our collective fearlessness to take a global step forward – together.

We are prioritizing connection. With our community top of mind, TEDxSeattleWomen welcomes you to join other attendees in breakout discussions, Community Conversations, during the event. Subject to availability.
