Dafna Michaelson Jenet

Co-Curator | Founder  

Frustrated by the lack of women on the TEDx stage, Dafna applied for her own TEDx licence and began curating events in 2011. Chosen to be one of the inaugural 100 sites around the world for the first TEDWomen Global event, she has continued to curate Women events initially under the licence TEDxCrestmooorPark and now with TEDxCherryCreek.

A former TEDx Presenter, Entrepreneur, Writer, Speaker and now State Legislator, Dafna brings a wealth of experience, passion, and knowledge to the TEDxCherryCreek experience.

With each event, Dafna continues to improve the experience for all involved. From her transformative Speaker Training Program to the unique "Human Board Game" both presenters and attendees will find a TEDx experience unlike any other.
