About this event

TEDxGaithersburg’s theme is “Ideas that write / right the future.” Come see and hear 10 thought-leaders from Gaithersburg and the DC-Metro region as they explore topics like:

  • navigating the transgender, nonbinary experience
  • how museums can reconcile their colonial pasts
  • the necessity of inculcating an inclusive mindset
  • using a trauma-informed perspective to enhance DEI consulting
  • restorative justice approaches that build community in classrooms 

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxGaithersburg, where x = independently organized TED event.

At our TEDxGaithersburg event, TED Talks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
