TEDx Scottsdale Women
November 20 @ 4:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Local Scottsdale and Phoenix entrepreneurs Jeanna Valenti, Kelly Sallaway and Tina Bakalis announce the organization of a TEDx Scottsdale Women event Nov. 20. In the spirit of TED’s mission, “ideas worth spreading,” the TEDx program helps communities, organizations and individuals produce TED-style events at the local level. TEDx events are planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis, under a license from TED.
The event will be held in two sessions from 4 to 6 p.m. and from 7 to 9 p.m. pm on Friday, Nov. 20 at Sneaky Big Studios in Scottsdale. Lindsay Moellenberndt, Chief Business Development & Marketing Officer at Fennemore, will emcee the event. A portion of the proceeds from the TEDx Scottsdale Women event will go to local nonprofit Ryan House whose mission is to embrace all children and their families as they navigate life-limiting or end-of-life journeys through palliative and respite care that addresses the emotional, spiritual, and social needs of the family.
Tickets are available starting on Oct. 14 at www.tedxscottsdalewomen.com.
“One of our goals is to mentor girls and young women,” says Sallaway. “We want to create a culture of excellence that shows them what’s possible for women in our community.”
This year’s theme is Re-Write Your Script. Speakers will bring their stories of re-invention, inspiration and transformation. “As a licensed therapist, I want to educate and empower girls and women,” says Bakalis. “Our future depends on the strength, leadership and compassion that women leaders provide.”
Call for sponsors and volunteers is open at www.tedxscottsdalewomen.com.
