We are delighted to announce that De Montfort University’s second TEDx event will be taking place online on 24 November 2020. Led by DMUWomen and DMUworks Enterprise, in the spirit of “ideas worth spreading”, we are showcasing some of the amazing women who are leading social change in Leicester.  

We cannot wait for our inspirational speakers to share their stories and for their voices to be heard. 

TEDxDeMontfortUWomen 2020 is open to all DMU staff and students, our Leicester communities and the wider public. The full programme of speakers will be revealed over the next few weeks @DMUwEnterprise and @DMUWomen twitter profiles and joining instructions will be confirmed by 20 November. We’re looking forward to sharing, learning and connecting with you!  

“We derive strength not from our rugged individualism, but our collective ability to plan, communicate and work together.” (Brene Brown, Dare to Lead, 2018).  

DMUWorks Enterprise is De Montfort University's student and graduate enterprise team. They offer a range of services and events including 1-2-1 business support, an online Start-up School, Enterprise Placement Year, DMUGlobal Enterprise trips and competitions.   TEDx was launched at DMU to help students, staff and alumni – as well as the local community – to develop entrepreneurial mindsets and to be inspired and motivated to take risks, make changes, and question the world around us. 

DMU Women is a fully inclusive network for all women who work and study at DMU as well as graduates, local and global communities and partners. The network’s aim is to encourage women to feel confident, listened to and supported in their work and study. 

Their vision is for a network that lifts each other up and reaches out beyond the campus to connect and work with people in our city, our country and our world. They support DMU Women through collectively delivering projects, events, research, conferences, celebrations, volunteering and fundraising. To achieve this DMU Women’s mission is to amplify voices through connection - to provide platform from which we can address issues of concern in a supported and supportive environment. 

TEDx is a grassroots initiative, created in the spirit of TED’s overall mission to research and discover “ideas worth spreading.” TEDx brings the spirit of TED to local communities around the globe through TEDx events. These events are organized by passionate individuals who seek to uncover new ideas and to share the latest research in their local areas that spark conversations in their communities. These events are not controlled by TED, but event organizers agree to abide by our format, and are offered guidelines for curation, speaker coaching, event organizing and more.
