TEDxFSCJWomen: Bridges

TEDWomen2017 Simulcast + Panel


Bridges: We build them, we traverse them, and sometimes we even burn them.  

Join TEDxFSCJWomen for a simulcast event—direct from the TEDWomen2017 conference in New Orleans!

Our evening will also feature a local panel of speakers who will discuss how gender intersects with poverty and what Jacksonville nonprofits are doing to help. Hosted by Courtney Weatherby-Hunter of the Women’s Giving Alliance, the panel will include Dawn Gilman (CEO, Changing Homelessness), Teresa Miles (Executive Director, Women’s Center of Jacksonville), and Dr. Gail Patin (CEO, Hubbard House).

Be sure to check out our exhibit, “Seven Bridges out of Poverty”—a gallery of photo portraits and information booths highlighting seven local nonprofits that are helping to lift women out of poverty, including BEAM, Changing Homelessness, Hubbard House, LSF Health Systems, Sulzbacher Center, the Women’s Center of Jacksonville, and the Women’s Giving Alliance.  The exhibit is open to all and it located just inside the entryway to the event auditorium.  

The Simulcast + Panel will be held Thursday, November 2, 2017, at FSCJ's Kent Campus in room F128, from 6 – 8:30 p.m. Doors open at 5 p.m. The simulcast + panel will run from 6-8:30 p.m.  Arrive early so you can view the portraits and network with representatives from the featured nonprofits.
