The program offers talks by inspiring speakers and space to discuss and network, making the Student Summit THE event for queer students (and their allies)!

TALKS & PANELS

From experiencing discrimination in the lecture hall to finding housing, from starting a career to integrating LGBTIQ+ diversity on campus and in the curriculum. We and our exciting speakers from business, politics, medicine, academia and the community will provide you with all the information you need on the latest topics. Details about our speakers and the program will follow soon.

ONLINE

Whether you are in the DACH region or abroad – no matter where you are – join the SXS Student Summit simply and easily via your browser and follow the exciting talks and panels. Get in touch with students, LGBTIQ+ role models and experts from all over the world via (video) chat.

QUEER STUDENT NETWORKS

Network during the Student Summit with representatives of queer student groups from all over the DACH region! Especially students who are just starting their studies can take home first-hand information about LGBTIQ+ offers at universities through the exchange with committed students.

ALLYSHIP & SAFE SPACES

Experts inform visitors about forms of discrimination against LGBTIQ+, civil courage, the rights of students and give you practical help and tips along the way.

NETWORKING

Take the opportunity to connect with LGBTIQ+ students, speakers, experts and role models through our networking formats! In particular, regional LGBTIQ+ groups and representatives from safe spaces and the queer community will be present to tell you how you can quickly gain a foothold as an LGBTIQ+ in your place of study.

LGBTIQ+ CAMPUS SURVEY

Through the Campus Survey, students can anonymously share their experiences and perceptions about LGBTIQ+ on campus. You can still participate in the survey until January 1, 2022! Attend the Student Summit on February 4 and be there when the results are released!

CAMPUS INDEX

For the first time, our Campus Index, which makes the LGBTIQ+ engagement of universities in the DACH region visible, was published on June 1, 2021. We offer you insights on LGBTIQ+ diversity management at universities, on our project and on how you can use the LGBTIQ+ Campus Index for yourself.

I AM NOT LGBTIQ+. CAN I STILL PARTICIPATE IN THE STUDENT SUMMIT?

LGBTIQ+ allies are of course welcome at the Student Summit! Our program offers exciting content not only for individuals who identify as LGBTIQ+, but for anyone who wants to support LGBTIQ+ individuals and advocate for more diversity at their university.

I AM NOT A STUDENT (IN THE DACH REGION). CAN I STILL PARTICIPATE IN THE STUDENT SUMMIT?

Yes, the Student Summit is explicitly aimed at students in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Nevertheless, our program offers exciting content for everyone who wants to promote LGBTIQ+ diversity at universities. We look forward to your visit, no matter where in the world you are at the moment.

HOW DOES THE ONLINE SUMMIT WORK?

You can visit the Student Summit via PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone, either browser-based via Chrome or Mozilla, or via the app of our event platform for Android and iOS.
