 If you're familiar with TED Talks then you know that they have a great reputation for bringing you "ideas worth sharing" through relaxed but informative discussions. What you might not have heard of yet is that there will be a TEDx event in Ottawa very shortly! On December 2nd from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Arts Court called a TED event called TEDxSandyHillWomen will be taking place.

I was fortunate to attend TEDxCarletonU back in 2010 and found a lot of inspiration hearing about big ideas that were driving the work of some of Carleton's top professors. On the list for the TEDxSandyHillWomen is WISE's very own Gail Carmichael. She will be speaking about why she cares about telling girls that tech fields are fun and rewarding.

If you want to find out more you can check out their website and like their facebook page. To attend the event you have to fill out an application but I was also told that there may be opportunities to volunteer.
