TEDxWomen comes to the Winthrop

by Jamie on December 4, 2011



TED…..ideas worth spreading.  We agree.  The TED conferences have gained worldwide recognition as a venue for the most innovative, brave, inspired, out of the box thinkers of our time, sharing ideas that they think will change the way we live with one another and the world.

Last week the Winthrop Estate hosted a TEDxWomen live simulcast.  We invited 60 of the Berkshires most dynamic women to come and watch TED presentations in our music room.  The energy was palpable. Barbara Streisand spoke passionately about the need for more research money to find a cure for women’s heart disease; Tan Le shared a triumphant personal story of overcoming obstacles as a young minority immigrant; Lamis Zein awed us with her bravery (she works to demolish cluster submunitions in Lebanon, her homeland).

Everyone had a great time.  The food was excellent and the company stimulating.  This was our second annual TedxWomen event and we look forward to our next.  We are now in the planning stages of a May TEDxBerkshires conference.

Stay tuned for more ideas worth sharing!  www.TEDxBerkshires.com
