The first ever TEDxWhitehallWomen event took place at BAFTA in London on Friday 6th December an inspirational afternoon of lectures given by women reshaping the worlds of business, government and social enterprise. The event was held in association with TEDx, a programme of independently organised events designed to encourage debate and spark ideas. An amazing line-up of live and video-linked speakers including MP Stella Creasy, Editor-in-Chief of The Huffington Post UK Carla Buzasi and Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook, discussed the transformational journeys of women in their personal and professional lives, and considered how women are reshaping the future.
