TEDWomen 2016: It's about time.

In planning for TEDWomen 2016, we asked our community: What matters to you now? And in emails and comments and even drawings from TEDxWomen organizers and our network of longtime attendees, one powerful theme emerged: time.

Time is personal. We all have the same amount of time — 24 hours a day and yet most of us feel we never have enough. Even with today’s latest inventions, technology, science, we can’t make time or stop time — or can we?

Come explore time zones, time travel, time outs and times together. We will explore the conventions and challenges of time.

We will ask the hard questions. Because isn't it about time:

In our three days together in San Francisco, we will hear talks that offer up ideas, stories, solutions.
