Join us for the day as we turn our attention to uncover how women in Rwanda and around the world are "Breaking Barriers". Whatever their focus and talent - business, technology, art, science, politics - these pioneers are joining forces in an explosion of discovery and ingenuity to drive real, meaningful change.
As part of the global TEDWomen events programme, TEDxNyarugengeWomen will bring together 8 speakers and performers who are showing up to face challenges head on and empowering each other to shape the future we all want to see.
Come to hear about their great ideas!
