As of 2019, 49.6% os the world’s population are female. Empowering women is, therefore, empowering society. Here are three TED Talks from empowered women who are in the business of empowering others.

Katharine Wilkinson: How empowering women and girls can help stop global warming

 

“If we really want to address climate change, we need to make gender equity a reality, says writer and environmentalist Katharine Wilkinson. As part of Project Drawdown, Wilkinson has helped scour humanity’s wisdom for solutions to draw down heat-trapping, climate-changing emissions: obvious things like renewable energy and sustainable diets and not so obvious ones, like the education and empowerment of women. In this informative, bold talk, she shares three key ways that equity for women and girls can help stop global warming. ‘Drawing down emissions depends on rising up’ Wilkinson says.” (source: TED.com)

Musimbi Kanyoro: To solve the world’s biggest problems, invest in women and girls

 

“As CEO of the Global Fund for Women, Musimbi Kanyoro works to support women and their ideas so they can expand and grow. She introduces us to the Maragoli concept of ‘isirika’ — a pragmatic way of life that embraces the mutual responsibility to care for one another — something she sees women practising all over the world. And she calls for those who have more to give more to people working to improve their communities. “Imagine what it would look like if you embraced isirika and made it your default’ Kanyoro says. ‘What could we achieve for each other? For humanity?’ Let’s find out — together.” (source: TED.com)

Susan Colantuono: The career advice you probably didn’t get

 

“You’re doing everything right at work, taking all the right advice, but you’re just not moving up. Why? Susan Colantuono shares a simple, surprising piece of advice you might not have heard before quite so plainly. This talk, while aimed at an audience of women, has universal takeaways — for men and women, new grads and midcareer workers.” (source: TED.com)
