TEDxCUNY Salon: Reflections

November 14th, 2021


We are pleased to announce our Digital Salon event for the Fall semester!

Our daily lives have been altered— from the way we learn, to the way we show love to those dearest to us. As we leap into a better tomorrow, we must not only look back on our collective victories, but also recognize how adversity shapes the road to triumph. The process of introspection is intrinsically painful, long, and arduous, requiring much vigor and perseverance. The true power of reflection, whether occurring during moments of peace or chaos, lies in its ability to facilitate an increase in our individual agency, and thus create lasting change. Join us as we reflect on our pasts to create a more hopeful future.

A moment of connection and idea sharing 

We've designed a digital experience that will feature big ideas, groundbreaking speakers, and a space for you to talk back.

TEDxCUNYSalons are more intimate conferences, with a smaller audience and speaker roster to allow for lively discussion as part of our event. During Salons, we want to emphasize community and discussion more than anything else - let's make TEDxCUNY a space that feels like home.

TEDxCUNY Adventures - debuted for the first time in 2020 - are immersive experiences provided by our partners. Together, we want to explore what makes CUNY and NYC powerful by bringing our community on interactive trips.

Past Events


Ripple Effects

In times of struggle we are driven to action. When we act, and when we try to understand the actions of others, we consider how that initial action spreads outward, expanding to effect that which we may never know. What are the consequences, legacies, and ripple effects we create when we act, and why?


The Power of Voice

The value of each and every voice lies not in its utility, but in its existence. We use our voices to advocate for those whose voices have been silenced. We inspire change and we generate impact. Join us as we celebrate The Power of Voice.
