Women's Event Steering Committee

The Women’s Event Steering Committee is a group of high-capacity women leading Nashville across industries, who meet throughout the year to discuss topics, speakers, community engagement, and event experience. Their insight and perspective are the essential framework we rely upon to make TEDxNashville Women one of the most relevant and meaningful women-focused conferences in the Southeast.
