A chance to co-create an unforgettable gathering of minds and souls determined to play our part. The conference will unfold as follows:
Build expertise and make connections during intimate, curated workshops and custom experiences during the day — your opportunity to dive deeper into a topic of interest or learn something completely new. Come together for the opening speaker session in the early evening, then celebrate with new friends at the welcome party.
The second day is overflowing with TED Talks — four speaker sessions will fill the day, along with opportunities to network during breaks and a community lunch. End off with a convivial dinner followed by a late-night hangout.
The last day of TEDWomen is the climax of the speaker program, summing up and celebrating the conference. It’s followed by a farewell picnic to cement your new connections. Everything wraps up in time for you to explore beautiful Palm Springs in the afternoon.

With the snow-capped Santa Rosa Mountains as its backdrop, our venue, La Quinta Resort & Club has been a desert getaway since opening in the 1920s. Located 120 miles from Los Angeles, and only 20 miles outside of Palm Springs proper, La Quinta is a convenient location in beautiful, natural surroundings. For those who want to stay the weekend after the conference, La Quinta is surrounded by great restaurants, activities like tennis, golf, spas and hikes, and the outstanding art and architecture the area is known for.
A note about health and safety
Our priority is to gather as safely as possible. In order to do this, there are some health guidelines we’ll all need to follow. Everyone attending needs to be fully vaccinated (full course + 2 weeks), to complete a health screening questionnaire and clear a rapid COVID-19 test on arrival (which includes a medical waiver).
We may adjust or enhance these guidelines closer to the event based on medical guidance and local legislation.
