TEDxKenyonCollege is a local, independently organized TED event. The event strives to re-create the unique experience found at TED, where the world's leading thinkers and doers congregate to share what they are most passionate about. At its core, the fundamental goal of TED and TEDxKenyonCollege is to foster and spread great ideas. We aim to provide a platform where the smartest thinkers, greatest visionaries, and most fascinating individuals will be inspired and will have the opportunity to inspire others.
The theme for TEDxKenyonCollege 2013 was Everyday Leadership. The concept of Everyday Leadership explored how our passions translate into leadership and how leadership relates to everyday life. Great leaders are often all around us- whether we realize it or not. It's not about title or position, but the ways in which we strive to do our best and improve each other's lives. Our intent was to explore what leadership looks like in our everyday actions, decisions, and conversations, and how it inspires us to make ourselves and the world around us better.
The program committee was initiated and is chaired by the Student Activities Office, but consists of faculty and staff from across the college.
