Lineup for TEDxLSU released

TEDxLSU has announced its list of 2017 speakers, according to a University Relations news release. The event will be held on March 11, 2017 in the LSU Union Theater. This year’s theme is “Chain Reaction.”

“This year’s theme has been a fun exploration for our team and it’s going to be incredible to see it play out on the 2017 TEDx stage,” said Rebecca Burdette, co-founder of TEDxLSU and director of LSU Communication across the Curriculum, or CxC, according to the release. “It’s been exciting to see the chain reactions happening within the line-up itself. We knew about some of these as we were building the line-up and planned them with intention, but there are others that were more organic. I suppose that’s the true power of chain reactions.”
