1 What women, trans and non-binary folk really want
Obviously, there’s no one answer for this. But we do curate our TEDx talks to be a snapshot across the burning issues affecting women today. This spans a huge range of topics and communities, including LGBTQIA+ rights, accessibility, sex, the pay gap, poverty, human rights, and climate change. Ultimately, the purpose of TEDxLondonWomen is to bring us all together as a community and hear from the pioneering women, trans and non-binary people breaking new ground.
2 How to make change happen
“What can I do? What do you need? How do I help?”
Sound familiar? Yep, we know the feeling. If you’re attending a TEDx event, you almost definitely want to help drive action and real change. So we’ve put together a handy workshop to tackle just this. We’ve invited two absolute legends Payzee Mahmod & Kajal Odedra back to this year’s TEDxLondonWomen to share their expertise in how to affect change (Payzee’s even brought a Bill to the UK Parliament). This is one of the most essential tools you need to skill up in 2022 and make your voice heard.
3 How to have more orgasms
Ready for more fun and equality in the bedroom? Then this is the TEDx talk for you. You’ll find out what the orgasm gap is and how we close it from Dr. Karen Gurney. Dr Gurney is a clinical psychologist, psychosexologist and the author of Mind The Gap: the truth about desire and how to future-proof your sex life. She’s on a mission to improve the sex lives of the nation. We can’t wait!
4 What to do when climate change feels overwhelming
It’s no surprise that climate anxiety is on the rise, particularly amongst young people facing a future of worst-case scenarios. So is it possible to ‘keep calm and carry on’ in the face of climate angst? Clover Hogan doesn’t think so. What she thinks is that we should be able to thrive as part of the climate movement. This youth activist will be sharing her tried and tested techniques to dealing with climate anxiety in yourself and others via a live, interactive workshop during the event.
5 How to do a backbend
LOL JK – but we do have a special yoga session lined up for you to decompress and destress. This comes at the start and end of the day, to prep your body and mindset and prevent TEDx talk overwhelm (it happens!). Make sure you get some stretches and deep breaths.
6 How to coach yourself through a career rut
Want a promotion? Want to start your own business? Need a change of direction? Squiggly Career podcasters and workplace champions Helen Tupper and Sarah Ellis have created a brand new workshop to share with you inspired by their best-selling novel, You Coach You. Whether you’re trying to get unstuck, solve a difficult dilemma or discover a new career direction, Helen & Sarah’s workshop will give you practical ideas, actions and tools to help you coach you!

7 How to collaborate rather than compete
Tackle that scarcity mindset and learn why collaborating with your peers is always so much better than competing. @OfficialMillenialBlack Sophie Williams and facilitator Anna Woolf will look at the creation of the false scarcity narrative which pushes women into professional competition. Explore the reality of what actually happens when you become a solo, female senior leader, and why life is easier when you have your Lady Gang covering your back. Learn how to win – 2022 style!

8 How to make inclusion everybody’s responsibility
One of the brand new TEDx Talks we’ll be debuting is from Shani Dhanda, a multi-award-winning disability specialist and social entrepreneur listed as one of the UK’s most influential disabled people and BBC’s 100 Women of 2020. She’ll be sharing the need for more people to understand that individual behaviours, attitudes, and mindsets have an impact on the lives of others and shape our society. Diversity, equity and inclusion aren’t someone’s job; inclusion needs to be everybody’s responsibility.
9 How climate is affecting the fight against child marriage
Climate change and child marriage are two issues close to the hearts of the TEDxLondon community. So we’re delighted to be welcoming Dr. Faith Mwangi-Powell, CEO of Girls Not Brides to TEDxLondonWomen. With more than 20 years of experience in managing complex public health problems, Dr Faith Mwangi-Powell will shed light on the devastating effects climate change is having on the fight to end child marriage.
10 How to be a better ally
The theme of our event is #ShowingUp. Showing up for yourself, others, and the world. Throughout the day, we give a blend of blue sky thinking, actionable tips, and opportunities to connect with like minded folk. We’re holding Conversation Circles – a place for discussions where you can convene with your fellow conference attendees to swap thoughts with others. Picture this – you’ve heard eight talks, attended five workshops, and taken 100 pages of notes – and you’ve co-learnt some eye-opening new insights about women, trans and non-binary people, plus the tools to raise awareness and change behaviour. This is a great opportunity to improve your allyship.
There are still a handful of tickets left but they are running out fast! Tickets start at £8. Get yours now here.
