Barnard College‘s first TEDx event, on ‘Rethinking Failure’ happened on November 2, 2013, hosted by the Athena Center for Leadership Studies.

Established at Barnard College, a pioneering force in undergraduate women’s education, the Athena Center for Leadership Studies is dedicated to the advancement of women’s leadership around the world. We create and promote innovative approaches to leadership development; we educate and develop new generations of women leaders; we challenge—and change—cultural stereotypes of leaders; and we foster research and public dialogue that expands our understanding of leadership.

Photos of Saturday’s event will be posted in the coming days here.

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 TEDx[name], where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDx[name] event, TEDTalks 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.
