“The TED organization exists to share ‘ideas worth spreading,’ according to Jennie Young, director for TedxUW-Green Bay 2021. “TEDx events are intended to showcase the unique ideas and expertise relevant to a local community. Our Green Bay community encompasses diverse cultural and intellectual resources, and we’re thrilled that we have the opportunity to hold this event to celebrate that.” Young is an associate professor of English and the director of the first-year writing program at UW-Green Bay.
