Our initiatives

Our events are defined by the diversity of our communities.

We run several initiatives to bring underrepresented groups within the tech world into the spotlight.

From our women in tech program and the work we do with developers to our support for young scholars, Web Summit Rio is where you find stories that deserve to be heard.
