Last year a committee of San José State University students hosted a mix of impressive people on our TEDxSJSU 2015 stage where they shared a diverse set of viewpoints.
Christina Ngo, a fluid engineer at NASA, articulates the challenges of creating more LGBT-friendly workplaces. Pomo healer MarTan Martinez describes how to own one’s cultural identity. Nina G, “the world’s only female stuttering comedian,” teaches us how to be allies for the disabled. Business entreprenuer James Kao encourages collaborative approaches to dealing with e[electronic]-waste. Cultural activist Nathan Kiwere advocates for more protection of the animal totems of Uganda.
Joining our live speakers were TED talks by novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie reminding us of the power of more than one story, Gaza photojournalist Eman Mohammed bravely telling untold stories in war zones, and filmmaker Lord David Puttman on how understanding the history of slavery can alter how we address climate change.
We encourage you to join the millions of others who have viewed these talks. Prepare to be inspired!
