Highlights From the TEDWomen Conference, Day 1

More

TEDWomen, a conference organized by TED, is taking place this week at the International Trade Center in Washington, D.C. I'm attending the event, where press is limited and laptops, cell phones and cameras are all but forbidden from the main amphitheater. Now that I'm back from the first day, though, I've put together this list of some of the speakers whose talks were well-delivered and warmly received by the audience of 750.

More than seventy speakers and performers have been brought in to share their stories over the two-day event. Those sessions are supplemented with Skype stations linking the attendees to independently-hosted TED events around the world -- literally -- and other curated exhibits.
I'll be bringing you more from those tomorrow.
