We build them, we cross them, and sometimes we even burn them... at TEDWomen 2017, we will explore the many aspects of this year's theme: Bridges, through curated TED Talks, community dinners and activities throughout one of America's most beloved cities, New Orleans. We are excited to be convening TEDWomen 2017 in the historic Orpheum Theatre in New Orleans, with plans to capture the unique attractions that make this city one of the most visited in the US.

At this time of deep divides and rising global challenges, we will hear TED Talks from entrepreneurs, innovators, artists and activists, thought leaders from business and civil society—bridge builders from around the world.
