Diversity & inclusion are more than just buzzwords: it’s a purpose
In recent years, the business world has faced various challenges, but thankfully it has also created leaders who set an extraordinary example of what it means to guide their organizations with a sense of purpose toward a greater good. Aspiring leaders of the future encourage their colleagues to be comfortable with their authentic selves, invest in greater diversity, and put other people’s well-being ahead of their own. The global pandemic and the looming war in Eastern Europe showed that now more than ever, we need purpose-driven, world-changing leaders. In other words, organizations should cultivate a workplace culture based on humanity, empathy, and openness.
At OPEN Conference 2022, we are looking for meaningful ways to achieve that: experience, knowledge, support, and more. What do organizations need to become more inclusive? We curate this year’s OPEN Conference program to cover purpose, curiosity, and empathy in the workplace, and how these values can help foster a more inclusive work environment.
At OPEN Conference we are committed to better understanding today’s challenges and find purpose together through meaningful conversations, roundtable discussions, presentations, workshops, and case studies.
OPEN Conference represents not just a platform for business leaders and decision-makers, but also a possibility to influence local trends, use their voices and inspire other purpose-driven organizations.
OPEN Conference is more than just another diversity conference
OPEN Conferenceis organized by WeAreOpen, which was co-founded by Google, espell, and Prezi in Hungary. It is currently a community of over 1,000 companies and organizations. WeAreOpen’s mission is to show millions of people that openness is a value for organizations. We help businesses and employees experience, learn and demonstrate the benefits of inclusion. We do so through building the community of openness-promoting businesses and employees, offering services and insights, and creating campaigns with a coalition of businesses to show to millions that it is worth to be open.
We offer our unique approach as a starting point for others, as we share our network, experience, and expertise in order to create positive change together. We have local, regional and international businesses and organizations we cooperate with to make all of these happen.
