On Dec. 5, from Seoul to San Francisco, TEDWomen 2013 gatherings will celebrate women and invention. This year’s theme is “Invented Here” and talks at the various locations will discuss how invention—technology, art, social impact and more—changes lives, helps society and creates meaningful change. More than 150 TEDx events will take part via Livestream, engaging in a worldwide conversation.
The featured speakers at UCLA Anderson will include Nanea Reeves, COO of gaming and media-streaming website Machinima; Karla Ballard, senior vice president and director of Ogilvy and Mather’s The Impact Studio; and notable Anderson alumna Julie Uhrman (’04), CEO of open-source gaming platform OUYA. The live stream of the San Francisco event will accompany their talks.
“Lean In,” Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg’s memoir, was born from a TEDWomen talk, as was Jane Fonda’s well-known talk “Life’s Third Act,” now streamed by nearly 2.5 million people.
UCLA Anderson’s Center for Management of Enterprise in Media, Entertainment & Sports (MEMES) is sponsoring the evening event, which will be held in the executive dining rooms of Gold Hall from 6pm to 8pm. Register at MEMES’ TEDWomen site.
