Diversity Festival Adlershof
June 7, 2023 | 2pm – 8 pm
Volmerstraße 2, 12489 Berlin, Bunsen-Saal
SPECIAL GUESTS: Brix Schaumburg, Yolanda Rother, Musikband Shmaltz
With the Diversity Festival Adlershof we want to address the importance of diversity in the context of work and working together. Our focus will be on local stakeholders, especially in the university and corporate context.
Discuss with experts, hear about challenges and learn about practical approaches to solutions. Role models and coaches will demonstrate how diversity is becoming increasingly essential as a driver of innovation and in attracting talent. The festival is the cornerstone for the Diversity Network Adlershof.
Art and music complete the program. Come by and help shape the festival and Adlershof with your ideas!
Note: All keynotes, talks, and workshops will be held in German! But we encourage you to attend anyway, to network and get to know the scene at Adlershof.
Expect an interesting program that will showcase the different dimensions of diversity. At the Diversity Festival, you will have the opportunity to learn, hear about best practices, share experiences, and take part in discussions.
We are pleased to announce that Brix Schaumburg, an openly outed trans man and expert on equality, visibility, and acceptance, will be joining us as our keynote speaker and moderator. He is a strong advocate for openness and justice for all people, and an expert on the topics of equality, visibility, and acceptance.
