TEDxTinHauWomen will be hosting its second annual event on November 30, bringing another round of exciting talks to our Hong Kong audience. As preparations go into full swing, we are excited to announce the theme of our event this year, “Showing Up Now,” which will inform each and every aspect of our programming.
What Does Showing Up Now Mean?
This year’s theme puts the spotlight on how women worldwide are taking matters into their own hands, showing up for themselves and others to catalyse change in their communities. We will look at ways in which women stand up and make a real difference. In our fast-paced world, it is becoming vital that we respond in real-time, thus the emphasis on “Showing Up Now”. This theme underscores the urgency for women to make an impact.
How Will This Year’s Event Explore Showing Up?
The theme has endless possibilities for interpretation and discussion. It provokes questions like: Are we truly present when we show up for others?
Do we show up on time?
Are we showing up genuinely?
Why do we show up?
Our talks this year should prompt you to consider:
What matters to you?
What do you care about?
And more importantly, are you showing up for it?
Whether you are showing up to an equal rights march, to help your mom out at home, or to take some time out for yourself – these are all ways you can create a positive impact and achieve a sense of purpose. The speakers this year will be showing up on stage for an idea that they truly care about and think is worth spreading, which should inspire you to take action yourself. For all of you that want to be motivated by fresh perspectives, mark your calendars for this year’s TEDxTinHauWomen event on November 30th. Take our word for it, it will be worth it to show up!
