The International Diversity Conference for Business Leaders



    Make a DEIfference! 


  • Diversity & inclusion are more than just buzzwords: it’s a purpose 


    In 2023, more and more business leaders look at the bigger picture and focus on meaningful long-term impact rather than temporary gains. Purpose-driven leaders care about their organization and the impact they are making on society as a whole. According to research, a growing number of people expect business leaders to make ethically responsible choices and prioritize the greater good. Years of crises created many challenges in the workplace: quiet quitting, burnout, employee well-being, etc., which require better decisions that align with purpose and values.



    Organizations, now more than ever, are investing in diversity, equity, and inclusion. Business leaders who promote openness also have the power to inspire others top down and create lasting social change.


    Many new talent today, especially Gen Z, would choose to work at a company that is both socially and environmentally responsible. Future generations will also look at businesses and question the impact they have created on the world.



    At OPEN Conference 2023, we are ready to dive into these questions together with top local and global experts, business leaders, decision makers, and role models.


    We curate the conference program to cover the most relevant topics in the business community right now, such as purpose-driven leadership, belonging in the workplace, social responsibility and impact, and many more.
