Carrin and Lisa,
As people who are passionate about women, I thought you might be interested in this. Please feel free to share this invitation with your circle of friends!
I want to invite you to something that I am working on with a couple of friends – TEDxStillwater. If you are familiar with the TED organization, you know how incredible TED talks are. If you haven’t heard of TED, check out their web site http://www.ted.com to see how they live out their mission “riveting talks by remarkable people, free to the world.” TED grants licenses to local sites around the world to host events as a part of its TEDx program. Some friends and I had the dream of hosting a TEDx event here in Stillwater. Recently, we were approved to host a live viewing party for the upcoming TEDWomen conference. I am really, really excited about this!
Here is the invitation:
You are invited to join former Secretary of State Madeline Albright, Facebook’s Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg, a Masai father and daughter, and many other incredible leaders from around the world as we explore how women and girls are reshaping the future.
Right here in Stillwater, we will be hosting a LIVE video streaming of the first ever TEDWomen Conference in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the conference itself, please see the TED.com web site at http://conferences.ted.com/TEDWomen/
