This TEDx event is independently organized through the UO and will explore the ways diversity fuels creativity.
Sabrina Parsons, the CEO of the Eugene-based company Palo Alto Software, is one of the event’s main speakers. She’ll focus on the attitudes toward women in authority roles.
“Every woman, just like men, can just be themselves and do what makes them comfortable and act how they want to act and that there is power in that,” Parsons said.
The TEDx talk is happening Saturday, April 19 from 9:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. at Beall Hall on the UO campus. Parsons is scheduled to speak at 10 a.m.
Tickets for the event cost $40, which includes lunch.
