OPEN Backstage is where the fun begins: it’s all about bringing the OPEN community together with a variety of engaging acts and talks around diversity and inclusion. This monthly event series aims to bring together the most active diversity champions of the OPEN community to create memorable experiences, spark meaningful conversations and interactions among likeminded people. Events will cover a range of diversity-related topics such as gender balance, LGBTQ+ inclusion, disability awareness and Roma people. The events can feature artistic performances, screenings and inspirational speakers or other mediums.
OPEN Backstage also features Executive Events for senior management where the main discussions shall be on shaping diversity and inclusion as an open community.
OPEN Backstage events are the meeting point for the members of the Supporting Circle. In certain cases, some seats might be available for the wider public, friends of WeAreOpen or the OPEN Community as well.
