9. Where did you come up with TEDx Centennial Park Women? It’s awfully long to type into a url!

Good question. Here is an equally long answer.

Atlanta’s Centennial Park is part of the rich history of Atlanta. It first came into being during the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games and was a great gathering spot for visitors and residents of Atlanta. It’s a great legacy of the Olympic games in Atlanta. We chose this name not just because it represents a great gathering spot for the Atlanta community, but also because Olympic athletes represent a drive to excel, to change the game, and a belief in themselves.  TEDx Centennial Park Women likewise represents the gathering of the Atlanta ripple-makers to help us excel and change the game for the advancement of women in our city, country and the world at large.
