Jensine Larsen, an award-winning social media entrepreneur and international journalist, is the founder of World Pulse, an action media network powered by 50,000 women from 190 countries. Jensine has pioneered World Pulse magazine, grassroots women’s citizen journalism training, and an interactive website that enables women on the ground to speak for themselves and connect to solve global problems—including those using internet cafes and cell phones from rural villages and conflict zones.
With her finger on the pulse of women's voices globally, Jensine speaks around the world, appearing in media and on stages from NPR to TED. In his best selling book, Half the Sky, New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof recommends joining World Pulse as one of the top 4 things you can do in 10 minutes to support women globally.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxMtHood, where x=independently organized TED event.
At our TEDxMtHood event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. Visit TED.com to learn more.
