STUDENT: A MINDSET, NOT AN ENROLMENT STATUS.
STICKS & STONES is launching the first Student Summit! Throughout the day, the conference will focus on various aspects of being LGBTIQ+ within a University environment. The program is packed with informative and inspirational talks, practical and insightful workshops, and plenty of opportunities to network and learn from one another. Making the Student Summit the one-stop event for LGBTIQ+ students and their allies!
From experiencing discrimination in the lecture hall to finding housing, from starting a career to integrating LGBTIQ+ diversity on campus. Bringing more diversity, inclusion and pride throughout your University can be challenging. So, we’ve brought together a group of knowledgeable, insightful and compassionate speakers to deliver talks and panels on the most relevant topics for LGBTIQ+ students today. Details about our speakers and the program will follow soon.
The SXS Student Summit is open to all students who have access to a computer/phone and functioning WiFi. Join in and get in touch with students, LGBTIQ+ role models and experts from all over the world.
Network during the Student Summit with representatives of queer student groups from all over Germany, Austria and Switzerland! Students can take home first-hand information about LGBTIQ+ offers at universities through the exchange with committed students.
Allies are welcome to the Student Summit, whether as visitors or speakers. Both allyship and safe spaces will be discussed within the program. Notably, discussions will be held about the forms of discrimination against LGBTIQ+ folx, the rights of students and practical resources and advice will be provided. Also, we will be facilitating online-communities for attendees post-event and highlight existing safe spaces they can join.
Take the opportunity to connect with LGBTIQ+ students, speakers, experts and role models through our networking feature!
On the 1st of June ’21, we released the first Campus Index, which assessed the LGBTIQ+ engagement of universities in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. We offered insights on LGBTIQ+ diversity management at universities, and offered suggestions on how to apply the results of the LGBTIQ+ Campus Index to your life.
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.
