Diversity helps us having different perspectives, seeing all possibilities and having a wider viewpoint. We do what it takes to diversify our team, attendees and speakers to include everybody.


We value transparency, and care about being upfront and visible about the actions we take, which makes our actions visible in the eyes of everybody and let us see if those actions are consistent with our values, giving us a framework for continuous integration with our values.


We are seeking a wide consensus in our actions and hear each other, always keeping in mind that we are a team. If you want to go quickly, go alone, If you want to go far, go together.

Environmental Responsibility

We care about the environment, and we are doing our best to contribute to a greener planet. We will focus on reducing our carbon footprint throughout the congress.
