Welcome to TEDxEmory Main Conference 2021: SIMPLEXITY!
Our 100% student-run Emory University organization is proud to present 11 original TEDx talks by professionals, changemakers, thought leaders, and even two Emory students! Simplexity is designed to demonstrate simplicity in a seemingly complex world & uncover the hidden complexity of life's most simple things.
At this unique moment in history, it is more vital than ever to highlight how each and every facet of each and every career, passion, and problem present in our world today has hidden complexities lying below the surface. Our speakers will challenge you to find simplicity amongst complexity, complexity amongst simplicity, and everything in between.
Our live virtual event on April 17th will feature our recorded TEDx talks interlaced by interactive speaker Q&A, giveaways, and special performances by Emory students and performance groups! This is a virtual event you will not want to miss.
