In October, TEDxGreenville hosted a live stream of TEDWomen from Vancouver. Our program also featured two local speakers talking about women’s issues. Enjoy these two talks.
The Art of Affirmation
Women, through empathy and their understanding the suffering of others throughout the world, have the ability to save the world. The culture in the corporate world is changing for women. Women are becoming more and more of an influence in corporate America, and the corporate world must continue to embrace women in the workforce.
Sex and World Peace: Why We Need to Care about Gender Equality
Research shows that gender equality and gender diversity improve economic development, promote peace, and improve the performance of companies and governments. While gender inequality impacts all women and men around the world, for some women and girls it is a matter of life or death. Every year 4 million women and girls disappear, simply because they are female. Through her work with one of the largest giving circles in the world, Dining for Women, Susan Stall has learned that we should all care about gender equality.
