Rodrigo Baggio (founder of CDI, Brazil) will be speaking at Stanford in Cordura Hall, Room 100 on Monday, Feb 26 at 3pm.
He founded the Committee for Democracy in Information Technology (CDI) and opened CDI’s first technology school, called an IT & Citizens’ Rights School in Dona Marta, one of Rio’s oldest slums.
The innovative model garnered support from all spheres of society and rapidly spread throughout Brazil and then internationally. Today, CDI is an extensive network of 900 schools in eight countries – Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Uruguay and South Africa. More than a half million people have already benefitted from CDI programs.
