At TEDxUF 2016, 10 speakers from various disciplines shared their ideas on how technology, entertainment or design can help us understand and reclaim our identities.

A former NFL player whose work with LBGT youth helped him accept his own sexuality. A former corporate climber who found true success only after letting go. A biologist whose vast evolutionary trees show us how interrelated we really are.

Attendees learned to dispel controversy with humor, un-internalize negative stereotypes and grow to appreciate “slacktivism.”
