Mission

Our aim is to facilitate discussions and kickstart interdisciplinary research projects on the challenges and opportunities of entrepreneurial diversity in the face of digitalization. The conference brings together scholars, practitioners and students to discuss the following questions from an interdisciplinary angle:

On day 1 of this two-day conference, we are inviting interdisciplinary scholars and practitioners to share their ideas and experiences and determine the current state of knowledge through various Diversity Talks.

On day 2, these insights will be used in a Paperthon to kick-start interdisciplinary research projects exploring different facets of entrepreneurial diversity in the context of digitalization.

The latest deadline for the conference registration is
10 June (proposals are  also due to 10 June!)
.
More information regarding the conference fees can be found under ‘General Information‘.

🍋 The amazing Sarah from @humblepieberlin took care of the brain food and treated us with delicious southern sliders, sweet potato salads, cookies, and a few words on her very own business. Cheers!

🍋 Scientists getting to know each other - after all ideas were pitched the participants had time to get to know each other and form teams of similar interests and aspirations for the research projects. In the end four teams were formed.

🍋 Our second day of conference deserves a proper recap too. This day was all about kickstarting research projects on the topic of entrepreneurial diversity. Prof. Dr. Hannes Rothe introduced the Paperthon to the participants. Anyone with data or an idea for a project then had one minute to pitch it to the rest of the group.

🍋 „Pink and yellow might not be everyone’s favorite color combination, but it speaks loudly. Just as loudly as we want our topic to be heard.“ said @almostlove, who is responsible for the ‚Hello Diversity! Conference‘ graphic design. .
And look how perfectly the florists from 'Fiebig' brought the color scheme to life with these pretty arrangements.

🍋 We invited students, experts like inclusion managers or entrepreneurs, as well as scientists to our conference - and guess what, they all came! Having such a distinct set of target groups can be quite challenging, but more over it creates incomparable opportunities to meet one another at eye level.
.
#2: The incredible @co.women interns, who brought their own project. They filmed some of our participants, stating what good leadership means to them and what in their opinion the next step in terms of diversity would be. .
For us, good leadership means not only valuing your company but also the people, who work there. The next step towards diversity for us would be to get connected and support each other. .
#3: You can’t attend a conference where the topic is in any way related to digitalization, without checking your phone once in a while for updates from the cyberspace. That’s the law!

🍋 Recap time! This day went by so fast. From solving small to medium crises on the go, to setting up catering, decoration and tech, to finally meeting all our participants - all that in less than two hours! Seeing our venue, the Henry-Ford-Building, so calm and peaceful brings us back to this morning, when we put together all the pieces that we assembled over the past 7 months and that as a whole became our ‚Hello Diversity! Conference‘.
