  • The creative mind behind the OPEN Spotlight Award trophies

    Rebeka Rácz

    Meet the amazing Hungarian artist who designed the OPEN Spotlight Award trophies this year: Rebeka Rácz! After completing her design and art theory studies, Rebeka Rácz learned the art of ceramics in an autodidact way. Accepting and highlighting randomness and imperfection is important in her work. She approaches design and creation in an unconventional way, her works reflect freedom and character.

    You can see Rebeka's work on Squarespace and Instagram

  • OPEN Stories: We would like to collect 50 personal stories to inspire changes in the workplace.

    Would you share yours?

    There is always a story to tell: each and every workplace experience is different, and all of them count.

     

    Do you feel accepted at your workplace? Have you sensed any sort of discrimination based on gender, sexuality, race etc.? Do you wish for improvement in diversity and inclusion?

     

    Tell us what you’ve been through at your own workplace experiencing diversity and inclusion regardless if it was positive or negative, because we believe that every story is important in order to build a more inclusive and open workplace culture. Share your personal experience and inspire others to do so as well. Be part of the conversation and tell your story either anonymously or with your name.

     

    We would like to collect 50 stories and share their essence through our social media channels and with the audience of OPEN Conference, the meeting point for decision-makers who are driving their businesses toward openness. We invite you to be part of it. These stories show why diversity and inclusion are important. If you want to inspire changes by opening up about what you’ve been through regarding diversity and inclusion, please submit your story in the form below.

  • OPEN Spotlight Award

    The OPEN Spotlight Award Ceremony is open for Supporting Members, OPEN Conference attendees as well as members of the OPEN Community. Attendance requires prior registration and is subject to available seats.

    Please register here to book your place.

    In 2019 we are launching the OPEN Spotlight Award at OPEN Conference and sharing the spotlight with organizations that have gone through an inspiring journey in which they worked for diversity and inclusion.

     

    Our vision

    Our vision is that organizations leverage diversity and inclusion when building their success. We believe openness makes people feel happy and safe at work. These feelings enhance their creativity and ability to innovate, and give organizations a wider lens through which to view today’s challenges, so that they can contribute to a better future for us all.

     

    In launching OPEN Spotlight Award, our aim is to cultivate an international community of business and experts promoting openness, who inspire each other by sharing stories and knowledge and lead by example to start positive changes on a large scale.

     

    Make your work shine through the OPEN Spotlight Award if...

    The OPEN Spotlight Award is for organizations that have gone through an inspiring journey in which they worked for diversity and inclusion. It features companies who are willing to talk about these challenges, and how they have mastered them to become a source of inspiration for others.

     

    Their stories may be about how people were able to start a change; or about how diversity and inclusion positively impacted their core business, or how an open corporate culture helped build a sense of belonging in the organization, and the benefits of this cohesion. Or maybe it is about how a new approach in communications or in advertisement ensured a more real representation of people. The stories will be nominated in the form of case studies.

     

    Tell your unique story and inspire others

    We are looking for case studies that demonstrate the challenges and impact of building a more open, diverse and inclusive work environment.

     

    Who is qualified to shine through the OPEN Spotlight Award?

    We encourage businesses, small and large alike, and experts from a wide variety of backgrounds (creative industry, architecture, communications, etc.) to share their stories.

    We accept nominations from Europe. The awards may or may not be divided based on geographic regions.

    The nominated stories shall come from the past two years or from 2019 (2017-2019).
