  • OPEN Focus in 2018:

    Build competitiveness through openness


    It is a well-documented fact that diversity in 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.


    In 2018, OPEN Conference focuses on how building an open corporate culture helps hire and retain employees in the time of increasingly pressing labor shortage; and how openness contributes to making your brand loved by more, and more loyal customers.

    OPEN Lays Out the Business Case

    OPEN is the international diversity conference for CEOs and HR, diversity, marketing, and communications decision makers, as well as representatives of employee resource groups. OPEN represents a unique approach in Central and Eastern Europe - and presumably beyond. Designed for business leaders, while laying out the business case, it deals with diversity as a whole and talks about it from a business point of view.

    OPEN Showcases Best Practices to Inspire Changes the Next Day

    OPEN aims to inspire positive change already in the short term. OPEN showcases best practices and zooms in a variety of pressing topics such as LGBTQ people, women, people with disabilities and ethnic minorities in the workplace.

    As speakers, leaders from some of the world’s most impactful organizations, minds behind businesses with unusual solutions and inspiring thought leaders will be your guides along the way to build on diversity, leverage success, increase happiness – and do the right thing.

    OPEN is to Build Your International Network of Diversity Advocates

    OPEN is the annual forum for current and future diversity champions to meet, learn and share.
