Sacred Heart Schools, Atherton (SHS) is pleased to announce the third and final part of its TEDxSacredHeartSchoolsAtherton event slated for April 22 at 6:00 p.m.; the inaugural virtual event began a year ago, which pivoted from a live event to a virtual, three-part series when the COVID-19 pandemic emerged.
The theme from the previous two talks continues: “Humanness — Citizens of the Earth.” The seven speakers include: Janie Morganroth (SHP ’22), Connor Fitzpatrick (SHP ’21), Armin Hamrah (SHP’ 23), Selma O'Malley (SHP '22), Harsimran Chohan (SHP '22), Adrian de Vernou (SHP '22), and Anne-Sophie Lacombe Garcia (SHP '21). Read their bios and learn about the topics being presented by visiting the SacredHeartSchoolsAthertonTEDx

The event will not be recorded, although individual talks will be available on the official TEDx Talks
About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world's leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less. Many of these talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman.
The annual TED Conference takes place each spring in Vancouver, British Columbia. TED's media initiatives include TED.com, where new TED Talks are posted daily; TED Translators, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from volunteers worldwide; the educational initiative TED-Ed. TED has established The Audacious Project that takes a collaborative approach to funding ideas with the potential to create change at thrilling scale; TEDx, which supports individuals or groups in hosting local, self- organized TED-style events around the world, and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
