A wide-array of speakers, including a pair of prominent UC Riverside alumni, are scheduled to speak at TEDxRiverside on October 16, 2014 at the Fox Performing Arts Center in downtown Riverside. Bringing Riversiders together for the upcoming TEDx experience is a great representation of Seizing Our Destiny’s intelligent growth pillar. It will inspire Riverside’s future to take on leadership roles in Riverside and encourage them to harness their potential. Riverside works everyday to promote an outstanding quality of life for all through intelligent growth.
Events like TEDxRiverside are local, self-organized programs designed to bring the “Technology, Entertainment, Design”-style presentations to a community. TEDxRiverside was conceived and is being organized by members of Leadership Riverside 2014, a 10-month program sponsored by the Greater Riverside Chambers of Commerce that helps to develop the next generation of active leaders for Riverside.
“TEDxRiverside is the effort of a group of local community leaders who knew our community had a lot to offer and thought hosting a TEDx event would be a great way to promote the great works and potentially reach a global audience,” said Michael Pazzani, vice chancellor for Research and Economic Development at UCR and the organizing committee chairman. “The Leadership Class of 2014, with the help of many local sponsors, saw the importance to further the efforts in the region to promote arts and innovation. TEDxRiverside is a unique way to bring an entire day filled with exceptional speakers to one stage accomplishing this goal.”
“Riverside has joined the growing TED community to promote many of our own and the ‘ideas worth spreading’ right here in our community,” said Rebeccah Goldware, chief of staff in the Office of Research and Economic Development at UC Riverside and the Riverside TEDx organizer. “The breadth of information will span from local history to the future of artificial intelligence, all in one day.”
