If you haven’t bought your ticket yet, you still may do so here. We will keep the box office open until the program begins if you want to bring a last-minute guest!.

The 3 most important details:
1. Dress casually. As in…jeans are OKAY! We want you to be comfortable, especially at the picnic lunch.
2. Bring a box of tampons to donate to ORW’s Tapestry Program. We want to donate at least 100 boxes.
3. Come with an curious mind, open heart and willingness to have rich conversation.
How the day will roll
Parking is most available across the street from the theater at the Columbus Commons lot. There are also nearby surface lots.
Registration opens at 8am. If you haven’t pre-registered here, it will take you a few more minutes to access your seat than others who have.
We will have coffee and tea service upon your arrival.
Program begins promptly at 9am with local talks for two sessions. We’ll have one break for snacks and conversation.
Around noon we’ll break for lunch (box lunch, picnic style at Columbus Commons). Plenty of vegan and GF options will be available.
After lunch back in the theater from 2-5pm, we’ll show two sessions of from California of TEDWomen (we will decide that day which sessions are ready to view on the time-delay).
No videos may be taken, certain talks are prohibited from photography (we’ll let you know which ones). No flash photography. All seats are general admission. If you want to tweet, post or blog during the show on your laptop, please take a seat in the back row as to not disturb other participants or speakers.
You may come and go as you desire, but we hope you can at least see all the local talks. The speakers and performers have been preparing incredibly hard, we appreciate your support of them and TEDxColumbusWomen overall! We look forward to seeing you Thursday!
