With Bold & Brilliant, TEDxJohannesburgWomen 2019 places a spotlight on ideas from some of Johannesburg’s (and South Africa’s) risk-takers and innovators.
Two speaker sessions fill the day, which includes a productive, working lunch and ends with cocktails and networking. Speakers to be expected include women from all spheres – feminists, LGBTQIs, artists, mothers, entrepreneurs, activists, writers, politicians, sportswomen, dancers, healers, futurists, traditionalists, technologists, entertainers, youth, and more. They share learnings and insights, ask difficult questions, and challenge assumptions.
This is a celebration of pioneers who make power moves, those with promise just getting started, and those who show up as allies and advocates. It aims to be a a joyful, thought-provoking celebration of smarts, savvy and diverse dynamism.
