Intersections of Change

The TEDxCapeTown team invites you to experience our Intersections of Change digital programme, a 10-part series of online conversations that give us an opportunity to better understand how we and the organisations around us are adapting to the current times. 

Our mission is to engage leaders and change agents from across the TEDx community about how they’re adjusting to a COVID-19 world, with conversations spanning the intersections of change from social development, economic investment, education, culture, tech and more. 

About Conversation One: Unmasking the Social Impact with Emer Butler'

“A future of Equality starts with fair access to items of basic need,” says Emer Butler, a [email protected] speaker that took to our stage in 2018. 

Currently a junior software engineer and a passionate social entrepreneur, Emer started the organisation - an organisation removing menstruation as a barrier to work, life, and play. Like most during this time, her life has evolved and she has shifted her focus to assisting those in need and providing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and specifical masks to those who need it most, through her organisation Afika

In this conversation, we’ll learn about her decision to pivot her focus to providing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE),  the impact her organisation is having, and how you as the public can support her initiatives. 

Ahead of the conversation on June 5th, we encourage you to watch Emer’s past TEDx talk, Automating Equality, here:
