On Our Final "Virtual Route 66" For the Year: On the Immigrant Diaspora

 2024 is before us.  In the spirit of the mission of our Education Property, we hereby present this courtesy the Team at TED and the Farhang Foundation held on December 6 as we wish all a joyous holiday season and a prosperous 2024:

Part of a wider initiative uplifting the ideas and achievements of immigrant diasporas, TED and FARHANG FOUNDATION are proud to present a free livestream of the first-of-its-kind event featuring a lineup of inspiring speakers from the Iranian diaspora whose bright ideas could help shape our shared future.

Throughout recent history, Iranian immigrants have brought fresh, nuanced perspectives to the places they choose to call home—open societies where they can live, speak and work freely. As they flourish, Iranians lend their creativity, industriousness, and cultural richness to the broader global tapestry—to the benefit of all.


These incredible speakers, all members of the Iranian Immigrant Diaspora, will take the TED stage in New York City sharing ideas on topics such as immigration, culture, science and more.
