Zoom Virtual Event

5998 Alcala Park San Diego, CA 92110




TEDxSanDiego is gathering a global virtual audience for powerful conversations, inspiring performances, insightful interviews, and didactic audience participation. Led by veteran TEDx organizer Jack Abbott with a team of volunteers and in collaboration with the University of San Diego's Kroc School and graduates of its Master's in Social Innovation program, this virtual event – the first of its kind in TEDxSanDiego history – will run on successive evenings from 5 to 6 p.m. on Monday, August 10, through Thursday, August 13.

No speakers on red carpets talking to large theater audiences. Instead, join us online as we dig deep into the hearts and minds of these extraordinary presenters and activate the power of possibility in each of us.



How Are You Responding to Uncertainty? 

Dr. Edith Eva Eger, best selling author of The Choice: Embrace the Possible, says, "The thing you can change is now...look at this as a gift. You become stronger and better for what you're experiencing." Join us for a talk and deep conversation, as she draws on her experiences during the holocaust to talk about how we respond, how to be a "survivor and never a victim of anything, anyone or any circumstance." Dr. Eger’s talk will be followed by an interview and a moderated interactive conversation with the audience.


What’s Love Got to do With This?

What's love got to do with this? And what about rage, grief and despair? How practicing Revolutionary Mindfulness may be the key to emotional agility, hopeful connection and political action with others in times of darkness. An interview will be followed by a moderated interactive discussion with the author of “The Inner Work of Social Justice.”


What’s Your Pandemic Pivot? 

Gregory Shepard managed his way through crisis after crisis since childhood. The skills you’ve picked up in life, whether running a business or managing a family don’t necessarily equip you to cope with catastrophes. Greg has identified four key steps to help you survive a financial crisis. Greg’s talk will be followed by a moderated conversation with the audience.


We Have Work to Do. 

Join our conversation with Elizabeth White as she talks about the Black Lives Matter movement, why she's hopeful, and why she says "we all have bricks that we can use to build with or to disrupt and destroy." How will you use your bricks? Elizazabeth's presentation will be followed by a moderated conversation with the audience.
