TEDx is coming to Carson with a full force of entertaining, informative, and downright paradigm-shifting short talks (only 10-15 minutes each), each touching on the theme of Creating the Community You Want to Live In. From battling the negative effects of certain food dyes to battling prejudice in the transgender community, to the Adams Hub’s very own mentor John Rutledge addressing the challenges lawyers face in today’s society, each speaker has something fresh and insightful to share. The all-day event seeks to bring ideas from multiple perspectives and disciplines into the forefront, creating an atmosphere rich in discussion, reflection, and positive action. The first few #speakers and further info on their stories and upcoming talks, along with event details, can be found in this article:

The talks will be 9 a.m.-5 p.m. April 8 and will feature 15 speakers addressing ways people can make a difference in their community and in their own lives.
“I want people to leave that day with the inspiration and tools to make a real difference,” Hill said. “I’m extremely proud of the fact that all of our speakers that day have strong ties to our community.”
Organizer Gina Hill said the goal for Carson City’s TEDx is to unite listeners in a common vision of creating a community that all would want to live in. She hopes it’s transformational.
