YOU’RE CELEBRATED, NOT TOLERATED”
Since its establishment in 2009, STICKS & STONES has quickly become one of the leading showcases of groundbreaking career fairs by meshing emerging talents with proud companies, as well as a platform for professionals to come together to present their skills and create synergies.
TALKS & PANELS
STICKS & STONES ’21 is a hybrid event: meet us on-site at the Verti Music Hall in Berlin or online where you can watch our talks, video chat with exhibitors, search for jobs and network with other visitors.
Everything on LGBTQ+ in the workplace: from being out at work to how employers can support LGBTQ+ employees, our talks cover applications and careers in start-ups, medium-sized and large companies.
Do your application documents need an update? Then let our experts advise you; you could also find your next job on our job wall.
The first 1000 tickets are free: register on the event platform or secure your free ticket via pre-registration here on the website.
While STICKS & STONES is not for straight cisgender folks, LGBTQ+ allies are certainly welcome. Many allies enjoy coming to SXS because it’s more relaxed and fun than your typical job fair. Our presentations cover exciting topics which can aid you in improving your allyship.
This year, SXS will have both a physical and online event taking place simultaneously. While the fair at the Verti Music Hall will host LGBTQ+ friendly employers, speakers and career coaches, the online fair will re-create the physical event with all of its benefits. You can access the digital fair via PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone.
Without exception, all visitors are required to wear a mask when entering the Verti Music Hall and during their stay. Mouth and nose protection is also required in outdoor areas (smoking balconies). We recommend wearing a mask on the forecourt.
The Hall is fully accessible and has an ideal infrastructure for wheelchair users and people with impaired mobility. The Premium Entrance on the left of the Mercedes Benz Platz leads straight to the lifts. Disabled access parking is also available at both the underground car park “Plaza” and the Mercedes-Benz Arena car park.
The Verti Music Hall is located at Mühlenstraße 76, 10243 Berlin. There are two stations right on our doorstop: S+U Warschauer Straße and Ostbahnhof. If you have to drive, simply follow the signs towards “Friedrichshain” and “Mercedes Platz” in the city.
“And yet nothing is common about this event, which took place over the weekend in Berlin: the fair is aimed at LGBTQ+ people (…) It’s the only career fair for queer people in Germany and the largest of its kind in Europe.”
“All people must be valued. And that works best if you clearly communicate an open corporate culture to the outside world. Interested employees then know immediately – I want to work here. Or: I don’t want to work here.”
“The high quality of the visitors is striking, which made us very happy. For us, as an exhibitor, STICKS & STONES has been an established event for years.”
“We were enthusiastic about the idea of an LGBTQ+ job fair when we were the first commercial law firm in Germany to take part: we are still present at STICKS & STONES today and we always enjoy coming to your event!”
