TEDx Brookdale Community College 2024: Are We There Yet?

TEDx has always made it a goal of bringing forth ideas around technology, entertainment, and design, and this year, we’re exploring ‘what might be to come’ with our theme, “Are We There Yet?”

The big event is being held on the Brookdale Community College Lincroft Campus May 23, 2024 at the Performing Arts Center (PAC) 3:00-5:00 p.m. 765 Newman Springs Road, Lincroft,  NJ, park in lot #1 or #2.


The event will feature the following diverse lineup of speakers, each poised to challenge perspectives and inspire change.

David Bassano: In his talk titled “Chiapas, Mexico: Fighting Police and Judicial Corruption,” he will delve into the struggles and resilience of Chiapas, Mexico, shedding light on the ongoing fight for justice and human rights.

Oscar Diaz: Advocating for greater female representation in STEM fields in the talk “What Influences Women to Pursue Careers in STEM? And, Why Should We Care,” offering practical solutions towards gender parity.

Sarbmeet Singh Kanwal: Presenting “Science Reimagined: Creating Harmony through Hope,” challenging traditional beliefs in science and proposing a unified approach to understanding reality. Ancient wisdom celebrated our connection with nature, but our current science positions us as its overlords, inclining us towards exploitation. An emerging new worldview may hold the key to getting us back in harmony with our universe.

Yesenia Madas: Sharing her remarkable journey in the talk titled “Grit, Gratitude, Glimmers: Discovering the Power of Resilience,” inspiring others to find strength in life’s challenges.

Philip Musey: Presenting “The Spirit of Black Entrepreneurship,” the filmmakers of the acclaimed short film The Inventor offer a compelling narrative of their journey to success. Philip’s deep exploration of Black male representation in cinema and Cabral’s journey from YouTube videos to a formal film education embodies their commitment to storytelling and amplifying diverse voices. Drawing from their experiences, they provide invaluable insights on concept development, scriptwriting, production challenges, and post-production finesse. The film screened at 11 festivals in 2022, was a finalist for a Warner Bros. Discovery short film competition, and was picked up by AMC Networks.
