TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx, local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience, where x = independently organized event. TEDx events combine TEDTalks video and live speakers to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including TEDxStLouisWomen, are self-organized.
