We looked for the next smart idea.
And found it.

Clinique partnered with TED, looking for smart ideas.
We received more than 1300 ideas from around the world.

Now we have a winner. An ingenious idea to help women
navigate through the life-changing experience of
motherhood. Thanks to all of you who participated.
It confirms that there are women all around the world
with the smarts and heart to change the world.

Meet Alison Bishop
and her winning idea:
Bootcamp for
New Moms.

There is no one right way to be a family. But the decisions can feel overwhelming, and your choices can be the difference between joy and satisfaction or a sense that life is out of control. In 3-hour workshops that include workshop grads and trained facilitators, new moms become more confident making decisions for themselves, their babies and their families. Alison Bishop, mother of four, is based in Irvine, California. Her idea won us over because it is important, affordable and easy to implement and expand. She will receive $20,000 in funding. Alison, we wish you great success.

Smart women everywhere are making a difference.

Here are three we admire.
