TEDxUofM Salon: Living with Disability

On December 3rd, the International Day of People with Disabilities, we held a salon with a panel of 6 amazing UofM faculty, staff, and students who spoke about their experiences living with disabilities. Our audience had the chance to ask them questions and destroy the stigmas surrounding disability and its unknowns to bring light to a topic that is rarely discussed. We hope that they'll continue this conversation going forward!

At this fun event held at the Mason Hall Posting Wall, we revealed the theme of our 2019 conference to the public: Absolute Zero.

We asked our passerby, what does Absolute Zero mean to you? We got answers ranging from “the lowest point of my life,” to “zero tolerance for discrimination,” to “meditation” and many more.

Come to our Conference on February 22nd to learn a little more about Absolute Zero means to our distinguished speakers!


TEDxUofM Salon: The Psychology of Fear

On November 1st, we hosted a Salon, an intimate discussion on a specific topic, about the Psychology of Fear. Participants got to watch two TED talks and have in-depth discussions about what they fear, why they fear, and how it may be possible to overcome those fears.
