Highlights of the conference

Best-Practice-Sharing in DEI-Roundtables

In groups of up to 15 people, participants discuss and develop possible solutions for current challenges in the area of diversity management. Experience, best and worst practices can be shared in a moderated workshop format. Visitors can co-determine the topics of the roundtables. During the registration process, we ask for specific topics that are currently relevant in your company.

Exciting talks and panels

The #UNPINKED brings various speakers and diversity experts to the stage, who also answer questions from the audience. Valuable insights can be brought back to your own company through informative presentations and panels.


Individual Networking

Many participants cited the diverse networking opportunities and the friendly atmosphere of the conference as the highlight of the day. At #UNPINKED, a wide variety of people from different industries come together - with one common goal: more appreciation for LGBTIQ+ people. This kind of connection creates a very special environment in which valuable, lasting relationships and friendships can develop.

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.
