Please read the guidelines for submission below.
As you apply, please understand that an incomplete application
will not be considered or responded to.
Please read this before submitting:
  1. You must be available for the entire day, November 2nd, 2024. The day will begin at 7:30 AM and end around 8:00 PM. 
  2. If you are currently a keynote or corporate speaker, you are not eligible to submit to TEDxWoman Everett unless you have been expressly invited by the organizer. TEDxWoman Everett is seeking people with ideas worth spreading who already do not have a venue for their ideas. 
  3. Your idea needs to be clear. The TEDx stage is not for storytelling as much as it focuses on an idea. An idea worth spreading. 
  4. If you have been a TED or TEDx speaker within the past 2 years, you are not eligible to apply to submit to TEDxWomwn Everett. 
  5. If you do not live within 500 miles of Everett, WA you are not eligible to submit to TEDxEverett unless you have been expressly invited to by the organizer. No unsolicited submissions outside of the 500-mile radius of Everett, WA will be considered. 
  6. If you have presented your talk at any venue, your talk is not eligible. TEDx events are expressly created to provide a venue for talks that have no venue. 
  7. Submission does not assure inclusion in our next event. If your idea is of interest to TEDxWoman Everett will contact you within two weeks of submission. Interest does not guarantee inclusion in an event. Selections are made based on many considerations.
  8. You do not need to be a professional speaker to be accepted onto the roster. In fact, we kind of love it when you are not.
  9. There is no age minimum or maximum. If you are under the age of 18, you must have permission from a parent or guardian to participate in any part of the event.
  10. Understand the commitment to developing a talk. Hours of preparation go into creating this event. Expect that hours of commitment will be needed to deliver your talk. Meetings, rehearsals, and revisions will be a part of your TEDx experience. 
  11. Remember that if your talk is not considered for a TEDxWoman Everett event, there are many more TEDx's to approach.
  12. Please, be kind to the organizer during your application process. 
If you feel that your idea is eligible to be considered for TEDxWoman Everett, please send a message through this website. Any messages sent through anyone's private social media accounts will not be considered.
 
For your application, you will need:
  1. 3 high-resolution photographs. They do not need to be professional, but they need to be usable for media and promotion.
  2. Your biography. You do not need to be a professional speaker. This is to get to know you. 
  3. A half-page summary of your talk.
  4. A short video of yourself saying, "Hello!" (We do this not to assess "attractiveness news" but to make sure you are a real person. Tell us why doing a TEDx talk is important to you.
  5. Name, email, where you live (as you send this), and why you believe your idea fits into the theme of our next TEDx event. If your submission does not include all of this information, it will not be considered. 
And, this: please understand that this is a small event in a region that has several very large events. For the most part, TEDxWoman Everett speakers will speak on issues important to our community and to our residents as individuals. We have an extremely small crew, so will not be able to respond to all of the inquiries (we get hundreds.) If your idea is something we are interested in, we will reach out and contact you. We look at every submission carefully.
Thank you for your interest in being a TEDxWoman Everett speaker. If your talk fits our criteria and seems a good fit for this event, we will be thrilled to talk to you about it.
