Diversity & inclusion are more than just buzzwords: it’s a purpose
In 2022 corporations and small businesses face more pressure from their communities to lead by example and stand up for meaningful social change.
Responsibility is more important than ever: individuals, business leaders, and decision-makers are expected to act more responsibly and do the right thing. More and more business leaders are prioritizing the common good over temporary successes, and become more purpose-driven.
OPEN Conference is a forum for Central Eastern Europe-based employers, experts, and decision-makers who believe that diversity & inclusion are more than just buzzwords: it’s a purpose. Many experts in the region are alarmed by rising discrimination and hostile environments, so creating open workplaces is vital: both for the well-being of employees and the economic benefits it may contribute to. Employers pledge to do more for their employees and redefine the purpose of corporations to promote a workplace where everyone feels empowered and included.
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

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.
