TEDxDayton 2021 virtual event

The lineup of speakers for this year’s TEDxDayton  Signature Event has been announced. This free event will take place virtually on Tuesday,  December 14, and Thursday, December 16 from 7-8:30 p.m. 

Over the course of two evenings, 14 local speakers will give talks to share the TEDx spirit of ideas worth spreading. All the speakers auditioned earlier this year and were chosen by the  Speakers Committee.  

“Last year, we hosted our first-ever virtual TEDxDayton Signature Event and learned a lot -  especially that the Dayton community will support virtual events like ours,” said Bridget Hutt,  Signature Event Committee Co-Chair. “We look forward to bringing this year’s ideas worth  spreading directly into people’s homes once again.” 

This year’s speakers and their talk titles are: 

  • Alex Everett - You Know You're Dating Your Hairstylist, Right? 
  • Ernest Stockton - An Ernest Approach to Recidivism 
  • Faheem Curtis-Khidr - Black Leadership in Higher Education: A Call to Action and Equity
  • Jen Burns - Lettuce Talk About Food Waste 
  • Josh Sweigart - Local News Is BREAKING... And Why You Should Care 
  • Kami Anderson - "Molón de Idiomas" Language Swag in the Foreign Language Classroom
  • Karla Hollencamp - From Widow to Willow 
  • Lindsay Ryan - Phone Lines Are Lifelines 
  • Mark Bailey - I Need to Speak to Your Manager 
  • Marsha Danzig - Flamenco Is My Fight
  • Mary Baldino - We Just Want to Play! What It's Like for Women in eSports
  • Miri Later - Making Room for Trust in the Doctor/Patient Relationship: It Just May Save Us
  • Ryan Ivory - Being Black Is a Pre-Existing Health Condition 
  • Umesh Haritashya - The Wonder of Satellites: Real-World Applications 

“With concern surrounding the ongoing pandemic, TEDxDayton 2021 will revisit a virtual event format, but just like last year, the impact of our speakers’ talks will resonate just as powerfully with the Dayton community,” said Brenden Wynn, Signature Event Committee Co-Chair. “We look forward to providing another free, virtual event thanks to our partners.” 

Additional streaming details and performer names will be announced soon. More information about the speakers, updates about the event, and more are available at TEDxDayton.com.
