TEDxWilmette 2023
"Why Not?"

On April 22, 2023, TEDxWilmette will host its fourth annual event at Baker Demonstration School featuring dynamic speakers who challenge norms and break boundaries as they demonstrate "Why Not?".

In a world full of advice and formulas for success, we constantly ask ourselves why we should do certain things.  At TEDxWilmette 2023 we will instead ask, "Why Not?".  By reframing the question, our speakers will open our minds and imaginations to new possibilities, challenging assumptions and the "that's the way things have always been done" narrative.  These six inspiring talks will demonstrate what can happen when we take risks and make changes, especially in the face of uncertainty or fear.  Join us at TEDxWilmette as we step out of our comfort zones together and answer the question, "Why Not?"

For additional information on the speaker line-up, be sure to join our mailing list to receive the announcement and notifications on other exciting events.
