TEDxDelftWomen would not take place if it were not for the support of our outstanding sponsors. They share the spirit of TED’s mission of “Ideas worth spreading.”
IKEA Delft is one of the sponsors of TEDxDelftWomen 2015. We’d like to introduce this organization to you, and thank them for their support and contribution. We asked Leonie Donker and Jolanda van den Ende from IKEA Delft to share some insights:
1) What is your company’s name, and what do you do?
IKEA Delft is a home furnishing company which sells everything to make your house a home under one roof.
2) What is the company’s mission/vision?
The overall social ambition of IKEA’s vision is to create a better everyday life for people. We strive to achieve this by offering a wide range of well-designed, functional home furnishings at prices so low that it allows as many people as possible to be able to afford them.
3) Why did you choose to sponsor TEDxDelftWomen?
Women can be the most important catalyst for change in their children’s lives. They often spend much of their own income on nutrition and shelter for their children, so that they may enjoy better health and are more likely to stay in school. By empowering women, through education, skills training, improved healthcare, or providing a loan to set up small businesses, we can improve children’s health, education, and future opportunities. By supporting TEDxDelftWomen, IKEA Delft wants to contribute on a local level to the empowerment of women and girls.
IKEA has set up a foundation to help achieve this goal.
4) What do you see in common between your company and TEDxDelftWomen?
TEDxDelftWomen is about the power of women and girls to be creators and change-makers. IKEA believes that by empowering women and girls we can improve the lives of children now and for the future.
