UWaterloo Students organize fourth TEDxUW event

TEDxUW TeamOn Saturday, November 14th, the University of Waterloo will host its fourth TEDxUW event, the university’s official TED experience.

This weekend's conference will mark the latest event in a series of over 3,000 TEDx talks held around the world as part of the global movement to create open platforms for sharing riveting ideas with the world. 

TEDxUW aims to put the UWaterloo community on a global activity map that is being watched, shared, and talked about by 300 million of the world’s top problem-solvers, thought leaders, entrepreneurs, and change-makers. But this feat would be impossible without the incredible team of volunteers supporting the event. 

Behind the scenes, a team of talented, committed and creative individuals has been working tirelessly to make this event a reality. The 2015 TEDxUW team is comprised of 21 undergraduate and graduate students representing nearly every faculty. The group works closely together to coordinate marketing, finance, speaker relations, attendee experience and production.

From undergraduate and PhD candidates to representing every faculty on campus, it is safe to say that our powerhouse team defines diversity of thought. This, combined with our mutual love for TED and enjoying the work we do is our greatest strength. – Trishala Pillai, co-chair.

This year the event will focus on collaboration – specifically sharing ideas, learning, growing and appreciating differences. The day will host a line up of 12 unique speakers with at least one thing in common – the ability to spread an energy powerful enough to inspire and motivate change.     

If even just a single person leaves the conference or watches a talk and believes their perspective has been changed forever, all the hard work will have been worth it. – Mugwe Kiragu, co-chair.

UWaterloo community members are invited to join the official live stream on Saturday between 1–7pm in the SLC Great Hall. If you’re not on campus or are unable to make it to the SLC, you can live stream the conference on the TEDxUW website.
