Women Speakers Bucking the Status Quo

November 29th, 2018

TEDxGraceStreetWomen announced for December


Richmond will be hearing “Ideas worth spreading” at the locally organized TEDxGraceStreetWomen, announced for Dec. 8.

Like other TEDxWomen events around the nation that same weekend, this women-focused speaker series will focus on a central theme: “Showing Up.” The theme focuses on women who are pushing past boundaries in a variety of fields to bring about meaningful change and create a more desirable future. Confirmed speakers will be announced on the website by early October.

Nearly a dozen speakers will share their insights during the morning event at Grace Street Theater, open to men as well as women, followed by “Walk-the-Block,” a community gathering along Grace Street to Rappahannock, Julep’s, Pasture, Pop’s Market on Grace and Champion Brewing.

Dec. 8, 9 a.m.-1 p.m., 1:30-5 p.m. ($40)
