On October 27 from 10:30 am – 8:30 pm, Lake Area Technical College will host TEDWomen2016: It’s About Time via live stream.  As a TEDxLATI site, Lake Area Technical College was one of few selected and granted a license to host this inspiring event. This free event is open to the public.

TEDWomen2016: It’s About Time will highlight a common theme most wish they had more of –time.  Even though we all have 24 hours a day most feel it’s never enough. Come explore time zones, time travel, time outs and times together. Internationally recognized authors, scientists, business owners, movie stars and much more will discuss ideas on how time influences climate change, poverty, immigration, violence, race, gender and economic inequities.

The live streamed sessions will cover four main topics: It’s About My Time (10:30 am-12:00 noon), It’s About Our Time (1:00 -2:30 pm) , It’s About Equal Time (3:45-5:15pm), and It’s About Story Time (6:15-8:30 pm). Each session will include 8-12 speakers presenting approximately 12 minute expositions.   One hour breaks will be provided between each session.  There is no cost to attend this event nor tickets to be distributed.  Attendees are welcome to come and go as they please and refreshments will be served.  All live stream will take place on Level 4 of the Lake Area Technical College Student Center.
