The speaker programme at STICKS & STONES Digital 2020

Call for Speakers 2020


STICKS & STONES Digital is looking for LGBT+ speakers and straight allies for the online exhibition from 23-29 June 2020.

This year, STICKS & STONES Digital, the world’s first virtual LGBT+ job & career fair, will take place from 23 to 29 June. There will not only be exhibitors with digital stands, but also a lecture program for visitors. We are still looking for exciting speakers!

Get inspired, get better, get entertained

The topics we will address should be relevant to our target group and gender-independent. They concern the lesbian boss as well as the gay young professional. 20 percent of our guests at the last fair were heterosexual. The lectures should inspire, encourage learning or be entertaining. The following topics are conceivable:

– How do I present myself in a job interview?
– How do I network properly: at events or with the help of LinkedIn and Xing?
– How do I build my own brand with Instagram?
– How do I deal with stressful situations?
– How do I give a confident presentation?
– How do I negotiate my salary?
– How do I become a successful manager?
– Which jobs are still secure in the future?

We see the lecture programme as an invitation to exchange and discuss. We would also like to encourage female speakers who would like to gain stage experience to give a lecture.  STICKS & STONES has grown over the past years and generates a corresponding level of attention. 2,700 guests came to Berlin in spring for our tenth anniversary. With the digital fair we want to achieve an even greater reach. We offer our speakers a detailed speaker profile on our website and integration into our media work.

We, the UHLALA Group, are a social business that has been committed to the empowerment of lesbians, gays, bi, trans and inter persons (LGBT+) in the working world for ten years. STICKS & STONES is our most successful brand and it finances our other projects which are not self-financing and which would not be possible without S&S. For example, we operate the LGBT+ networks Alice, RAHM and Unicorns in Tech and in October we published the Top 100 list of outed executives in Germany as a cooperative effort.

Would you like to be a speaker at the next STICKS & STONES and give a 20 to 30 minute talk? Then simply fill out the following form. The deadline is 22 May 2020 and we are looking forward to your ideas!
