What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDx[name], where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDx[name] event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine 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 ours, are self-organized.

  • L. Carol Scott, PhD. - Dr. Scott will be speaking on “Never Lost Forever.” She discovered the power of a Big Dream during recovery from childhood sexual assault, which had left her with few tools for healthy adult relationships. A career in early childhood development intersected with this personal experience, creating new insights for recovery. Scott’s developmental lens shares tools that enable more trusting, less-conflicted and more joy- filled relationships and interactions, at home and at work. For individuals in any stage of transformational journey, seeing life from the kaleidoscope perspective of early childhood allows you to take your relationships and your life to the next level and leave the struggle behind.
