Simultaneously, over 110 TEDxWomen events were hosted by by TEDx organizers in communities all around the world, including China, the Netherlands, Israel, Pakistan, Romania, South Africa, Lebanon and the United States.

This winter, the Paley Center for Media will host the third annual TEDxWomen event —on Friday, November 30th and Saturday, December 1st, 2012 in Washington, D.C. The theme is “The Space Between.”

At TEDGlobal 2012, TEDxWomen hosted a lunch session for TEDxWomen organizers. As part of the event, TEDxWomen curator Pat Mitchell spoke, along with TEDx and TED Prize director Lara Stein, and June Cohen, Executive Producer of TED Media.

During the lunch, a Scottish Electric power outage caused the entire block in Edinburgh to go dark, but the TED and TEDx women were resourceful — the meeting went on, and TED Fellow Meklit Hadero treated lunchers to an impromptu concert.
