We're not a boastful bunch in general, but hey! Every so often a Saltie does something worthy of a big, public hoorah!
Yes, our very own Sonja Coetzer is speaking this weekend at the TEDxVinetaWomen event in Swakop. TEDxWomen events are about new ideas, new voices, and pushing boundaries. The theme of this event is Breaking the Bias.
This gathering will elevate the ideas of women connecting across generations to break the bias; inspire, ignite and uplift spirits. Sharing personal stories, stimulating conversations, and reigniting spirits with connections are always the hallmark of the TEDxWomen experience.
We know that being invited to speak at a TEDx event has been on Sonja's bucket list for a very long time, and we are super stoked with her, and incredibly proud to have her as our MD (Mother Dame) ;).
The title of Sonja's presentation is "Claim your seat at the table".
The event is this Saturday, 5 November, at the Swakopmund Plaza Hotel, 42 Libertina Amadthila Ave and it starts at 18:00.
It's a public event and limited tickets are available at https://tedxvinetawomen.com/ticket-purchase/
Sonja, you go girl! Break a leg. Let us celebrate our differences and embrace our diversity and the contrasting beauty of Namibia. Together we can #breakthebias
From all of us at Salt <3
