Since our first edition in 2009, we’ve quickly become a major career hub in Berlin’s LGBTQ+ scene and one of the most important events in your annual schedule.
We are the matchmakers: For over a decade, we’ve been successfully connecting LGBTQ+ talents and proud companies from all industries and career levels.
From a handful of visitors exhibitors when we first started out, we now average circa 3.000 visitors and +100 exhibitors yearly.
We foster a working culture where you can be open about your sexual orientation and gender no matter what. For this purpose, we host LGBTQ+ friendly companies and organisations which are committed to the appreciation of their queer employees. In the long run, we strive for a safer, more open, and colourful working world, while empowering the community with the tools to rise and succeed in their careers.
SXS is a safe space to connect, network, learn, chill or even get a tattoo. Our speakers offer inspiring talks on trending professional topics and issues affecting the LGBTQ+ community in the working world. Through other activities, such as coaching and CV checks, you are sure to expand your professional network and leave happier and more confident than when you walked in.
The Corona outbreak has put us under pressure to try something new and to reinvent ourselves. That’s why we launched SXS Digital in summer 20202 as the world’s first digital career fair for LGBTIQ+. The future is digital and we’ve always set trends with our fair.
With SXS Digital, we have successfully transferred the original SXS spirit into the digital world because we did what we’re good at: we bring together people, resources, careers, and know-how. And to make sure everything runs smoothly, we use the leading platform in the digital event sector.
STICKS & STONES is a project by UHLALA Group. Since 2009, we have been supporting, promoting and connecting LGBTIQ+ people in their careers and bringing them together with companies and organisations that appreciate their LGBTIQ+ employees.
