In the spirit of spreading new ideas, TED began in 1984 as a conference where technology, entertainment and design converged. Today, topics range from science to business to global issues - in more than 100 languages. Independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world. The organization passionately believes in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world.
Established in January 2015, TEDxHowardUniversity is an independently organized platform to network, discuss and share with a multicultural, diverse audience "ideas worth spreading." The event also is an opportunity to share these ideas with a global audience of residents, scholars, and students of the Washington area's consortium of colleges and universities, including the Howard University community, as well as the international visitors to the nation's capital, the economic, political, and cultural center of the world.
