1. Hannah Rosin: New Data on the Rise of Women

Using data which shows how women are advancing in the face progress made over the last 50 years, Rosin does a deep-dive and comes up with some exciting and surprising observations on the power dynamics between men and women.

2. Sheryl WuDunn: Our century's greatest injustice

From the hope and optimism of Hannah Rosin to the humility we progress to the reflection and ‘pragmatic realism’ of Sheryl WuDunn. WuDunn reminds us that so much more needs to be done globally for the advancement of women.

3. Sheryl Sandberg: Why we have too few women leaders

Sandberg is Facebook’s Chief Operating Officer, one of the most influential women in the corporate world and one of the most talked-about. She highlights the key differences between the behaviour of men and women in the workplace and outlines three compelling ideas for women to embrace in order to be successful.

4. Elizabeth Gilbert: Your elusive creative genius

Gilbert is a writer and the author of the bestseller Eat, Pray Love. Her foray into TED speaking has been met with at least as much acclaim as her book. In her talk, she shares the idea that we may not all be ‘geniuses’, but we do all have within us, a genius.

5. Amy Jo Martin: Innovate Your Life

“Renegade” Martin gives us a moving, honest and highly reflective talk on how to “innovate your life."
