Thursday, July 27; 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Fargo Civic Center, 207 Fourth Street North
The Chamber is excited to announce that FMWF YEA! graduate, Bridget McManamon, is speaking at this year’s TEDxFargo!
Now more than ever, ideas matter. Ideas can help create possiblities. Ideas can help solve challenges. In a world when so many are against or anti, we want to be solutions-oriented. TEDxFargo 2017 asks, "What are you for?"
The TEDxFargo team is crafting a day full of ideas and experiences to bring a world-class event to our community. From the stage, you'll hear more than 20 national and global thought leaders sharing ideas worth spreading to help solve challenges and create possibilities. Most talks will be 12 minutes or less, giving you the chance to try on many ideas during the day to see what sticks, what resonates, and what ideas you want to help move into action. TEDxFargo's goal is to be the TEDx event in the world best known for activating ideas in our community - to do that, we need you to join us.
We're giving you permission to make the Fargo Civic Center and downtown Fargo your playground for the day. You can start the day with optional morning adventures that will give you a new way of thinking about and experiencing your community. Inside the Fargo Civic Center, you'll find a world-class event with opportunities to experience locally roasted coffee, an infusion of arts, and speakers sharing ideas worth spreading. For lunch, local growers and chefs will delight you with a fresh, hand-crafted meal to be shared with friends old and new. After a full day of ideas and experiences, we invite you to continue exploring our community and thinking about how to move those ideas to action.
Bridget McManamon is 17 years old and a Junior at Moorhead Senior High School. Through The Chamber’s Young Entrepreneurs Academy, she started the charitable organization Herstory to increase access to menstrual hygiene products, empower young women to have a better understanding of their physical well-being and increase their confidence and ability to access leadership opportunities within their schools and communities. Bridget is also heavily involved with her school's speech team and theater department and hopes to go to college for Political Science and Women's Studies.
You'll find a lot of value in speaker Kevin Wang. Through his TEALS program, he's leading the movement in equipping students with the tools they need to learn in a digital age and is creating massive impact in the tech world. I believe that creating a larger base of folks who understand the importance of tech in our community is vital in the shaping of our world.
I hope you'll be a part of this conversation at TEDxFargo.
