Deadline approaching to attend UWindsor TEDx program

It takes a lot of pressure to make a diamond, and the organizers of an event on the UWindsor campus Sunday, January 28, hope to spark discussion on that principle.

TEDx University of Windsor promises a series of talks on the theme “Diamonds from Pressure.” It is a local project drawing on a global movement to share ideas worth spreading in Technology, Entertainment, and Design.

The conference will feature:

  • science advocate Tasnia Nabil, a Grade 12 student at Massey Secondary School;
  • Leigh Ann Hello of the green kitchen design team the Cabinet Studio;
  • Lancer women’s basketball coach Chantal Vallée;
  • Emily Branton, president of food bank software company Link2Feed;
  • St. Clair College psychology professor Andrea Dinardo;
  • UWindsor nursing professor Maher El-Masri; and
  • former University of Windsor Students’ Alliance president Ronnie Haidar.

It will run noon to 6:30 p.m. in the Centre for Engineering Innovation.

Registration is $50 per person, due no later than Friday, January 19. Find details and an application form on the event website.
