TEDWomen is a TED event curated by TED that focuses on women and women’s issues. TEDxWomen events are TEDx events that follow the live webcast of TEDWomen, and also feature live and local speakers. Our event is called TEDxDelthorneWomen and we are one of the many TEDx events that will happen around the world on November 30th. We will expand upon the ideas brought up at TEDWomen, while also relating it back to the Women of Los Angeles. TEDxDelthorneWomen was organized by Eraina Ferguson, a tech entrepreneur and journalist. Never miss a talk! SUBSCRIBE to the TEDx channel: In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
Sonali Fiske is a Sri Lankan-American women’s leadership coach and founder of Pick Your Platform & Raise Your Voice. As a mentor to underrepresented & woman-identifying voices of color, she centers the often suppressed and sidelined stories of those still considered on the margins of society. Her recent online masterclass on “Dismantling White Dominance in Women’s Entrepreneurship” went viral, and centered the stories of black, indigenous women of color countering the current narrative in leadership and influence.

She also leads storytelling workshops and self-care retreats locally and internationally, and conducts a monthly tele-call entitled “Call to Sacred Activism for women leaders” confronting uneasy issues such as cultural appropriation, tokenism, and white supremacy. And in her leisure time, she works on her first anthology of poetry for brown women. Sonali is also currently a council member of the International Council of Interfaith & Indigenous Women.
