OPEN Conference is more than just a conference: it’s a real-life community of business leaders and experts from all over Europe who are determined to act on diversity and inclusion and trigger positive change on a large scale.
In 2019, we introduced the OPEN Spotlight Award to honor companies and organizations committed to diversity and inclusion. The OPEN Spotlight Award winners will be announced at OPEN Conference 2019 in multiple categories.
OPEN Conference 2019
It is a well documented fact that diversity at the workplace increases financial performance, boosts creativity and innovation, and contributes to talent attraction and retention. Furthermore, employees generally feel better, happier and more loyal. In a nutshell, being open is not only the right thing to do, but it also makes business sense – on every level. This is what the OPEN Conference is about.
