2022 A100 List

From boardrooms to local government, movie screens to Spotify playlists, the Olympics to Web3, APIs are changing the rules of culture and ushering in an unparalleled era of excellence. This year, we honor those who are leading the “New Gold Age”.

In partnership with Procter & Gamble, we are featuring the proper pronunciation of the A100 Honorees’ names in their native API languages. We are proud to support P&G’s new campaign, The Name, to bring awareness to issues of bias and inspire communities to work together to address them.  With The Name, P&G elevates the importance of a name, and how meaningful gestures – like pronunciation and understanding its meaning – can create a greater sense of belonging for us all.

Let us continue to spark dialogue that leads to understanding and action, all while celebrating the diversity and authenticity of API culture by showing that belonging starts with a name.
