Join us for our first-ever virtual
TEDxMileHigh fundraising event,
The Riffle Effect

Like a drop in the ocean spreading across the sea, the most powerful things in our lives cannot be measured by a single person, action, or event, but by The Ripple Effect set off in motion.

Celebrate the future of ideas, inspiration, and civic engagement. Our first-ever fundraising event is built upon the ripples of generosity from our community; each gift emanates a positive effect and helps guarantee our programs for the future. Together, we will celebrate the power of TEDxMileHigh!

The Ripple Effect will feature extraordinary talent, including popular TED speakers, Theo E.J. Wilson, and Paula Stone Williams. Participate in the silent and live auction, the paddle raiser and, most of all, have fun!

health and mindfulness

For this summer event, we all get to play together in the sculpture park and enjoy awesome music. This chosen destination is home to the second largest performing arts center in the country, so we had to take advantage of that! Listen to the best live
local music as you unwind and connect
in between sessions.


Join us at the official TEDxMile High After Party for a chance to reflect and engage with fellow thinkers and doers. Get the chance to expand the concepts of the day while talking with your favorite speakers and peers.
For those interested in networking with Colorado’s coolest citizens, this may be your favoritepart of the event.

Paula Stone Williams

MC & Presenter

The Reverend Dr. Paula Stone Williams knows the truth will set you free, but only after it upends your carefully constructed narrative. Her devotion to authenticity caused her to leave her comfort zone as a nationally known religious leader and follow her heart to transition from Paul to Paula. She lost all of her jobs and most of her friends. Williams also discovered the massive differences between life as a male and as a female in America.

Williams is the pastor of preaching and worship at Left Hand Church in Longmont, Colorado, a pastoral counselor with RLT Pathways and a sought-after speaker to corporations, government agencies, universities, and religious institutions on issues of gender equity and LGBTQ advocacy. She has been featured in the New York Times, the Denver Post, New Scientist, Radio New Zealand, Colorado Public Radio and The Huffington Post. Her TEDxMileHigh talk on gender equity has had more than one million views.
