TEDxCincinnatiWomen returns with MainStage event

Thursday, Oct. 21, 7 p.m., NEW VENUE: Masonic Center Auditorium, Downtown

TEDxCincinnati is back and hosting its third annual TEDxCincinnatiWomen Main Stage Event. Performers and speakers will showcase a variety of topics including human connection, research on the gut, wellbeing, education, entertainment, new technology and community.

NOTE: The event has been re-located from Memorial Hall to the Masonic Center Auditorium to allow for more attendees and proper social distancing.

“I love connecting people and amplifying their stories,” said Executive Director Jami Lah. “TEDxCincinnati is an experience. It’s not only about the speakers. It’s about connection and innovation, too. We truly want guests to feel a connection to the things they are hearing and seeing at the show, and not just be observers.”
