“The TEDx stage provides a prestigious platform for launching perspectives that are not well understood. Therefore, it is the perfect place to examine how society has wired us to ‘fight for a slice of the pie’ when we’re actually capable of figuring out how to work with one another to ‘grow the pie.’”  –  Lee Towe
