Qvemos Represents Summit

This event took place May 18-20, 2023.
In May 2023, our annual 19th Represents Summit brought together key voices to discuss gender equality in tech, justice and economic mobility. We celebrated successes, identified barriers and learned from each other with inspiring performances and insights from iconic leaders. On the third day, we gathered in Chicago to talk about building generational wealth, turning the tide on debt and fostering community through mutual aid. Watch the full program and hear from keynote speakers like Douglas Emhoff, Tarana Burke and more.
