A retrospect on #UNPINKED 2023

September 2023 was the first time our LGBTIQ+ Diversity Conference was held as an in-person event. Over 100 participants from 58 different companies gathered at the DOUGLAS headquarters in Düsseldorf to learn from and with each other about diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace. 25 speakers and workshop facilitators shared their knowledge on stage and discussed possible solutions for current challenges in the field of DEI management in small groups.

Highlights of the conference

Best-Practice-Sharing in DEI-Roundtables

In groups of up to 15 participants, we will discuss and develop possible solutions for current challenges in LGBTIQ+ diversity management. In a moderated dialogue, experience and best, as well as worst practices can be exchanged among each other. Participants can co-determine the topics of the conference roundtables. In the registration process, we ask about specific topics that are current in your company.

Exciting talks and panels

Parallel to the interactive groups, there will also be an exciting stage program. Here is room for panel discussions, keynotes from DEI experts as well as exchange and Q&A with the audience.

Individual Networking

Many participants cite the diverse networking opportunities and friendly atmosphere of the conference as the highlight of the day. At #UNPINKED, a wide variety of people from a wide variety of industries come together - with one common goal: more appreciation for LGBTIQ+. This kind of connectedness creates a very special atmosphere in which valuable, sustainable business relationships and friendships are formed.

Get Together on the evening before

Networking already starts on the eve of the conference. Together with our sister project, the Proudr LGBTIQ+Afterwork Series, we will organize a get-together in a relaxed after-work atmosphere and beautiful location. Here, the #UNPINKED community can already get to know each other.

Our Host

We would like to thank our partner company DOUGLAS, because the conference of 2023 took place in the beautiful atrium of theDOUGLAS headquarters in Düsseldorf.
