Coquitlam library to live stream TEDwomen

Will have feed from sold-out, three-day inspirational event being held in Palm Springs

Taking in the TEDWomen2018 conference could be costly, but it doesn’t have to be.

That’s because the Coquitlam Library’s City Centre branch will live stream the three-day, sold-out inspirational event being held in Palm Springs, Calif., next week, saving interested locals the expense of purchasing travel and ticket.

This year’s talks are built around six sessions with the themes of showing up, getting started, breaking out, gathering together, showing off, and moving forward. 

They’ll be delivered by a diverse group, mainly women, speaking about breaking barriers, pushing boundaries and rising in the ranks of their fields of focus and talent. 

Scheduled speakers include artists, activists, an urban landscape architect, journalists, a quantum physicist, a roboticist, religious leaders, educators and entrepreneurs.

The streaming can be viewed Wednesday, Nov. 28 in Room 127 from 2:30 to 7 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 29 in Room 127 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., and in the library’s boardroom on Friday, Nov. 30 from 9 a.m. to noon and in Room 127 from 2 to 5 p.m.

More information on the event, including a schedule of each session’s speakers, is available at
