Cat Moore is the first Director of Belonging (USC) in the history of American Higher Education. This is ironic, since she couldn’t make eye contact in public until pregnant at the age of 28. After spending a decade in the cafes of Northeast Los Angeles building grassroots community in order to survive as a single mom, Cat turned the organic methodology for making meaningful connections into a curriculum for others so that no one would have to experience life alone and wonder if they really belong. She speaks, writes and consults with leaders across industries, from universities to the Department of Defense, to create organic cultures of belonging in an age of epidemic loneliness.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDxColePark is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDxColePark event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TEDxColePark events are self-organized events and are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event
