ROLE:

Event Program Chair, Promotion & Marketing Co-Chair 

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: 

While enjoying a 6-month professional sabbatical, I volunteered as part of the TEDxWomen Adams Morgan event planning team. This event was a part of the larger (international) TEDxWomen event held in 2013 and hosted by Pat Mitchell. The theme for 2013 was "The Space Between". Areas speakers explored included the role of women in the creative economy, servant leadership, finding connection online, new freedoms and limitations from the perspective of the handicapped, self-realization, and the damaging consequences of marginalized communities.
