The Audience Sees the Added Value
  • Barbora Valenčíková
    Community Engagement Manager at Ataccama
    I would like to thank the organizers for their efforts and professionalism that made the DEI Forum very beneficial for my professional and personal life and I am very much looking forward to this year's edition. I was most impressed with the panel discussion on inclusive design. It was a truly enriching discussion that brought me many "aha" moments.
  • Jarek Kotal
    Head of Learning and Development CZ/SK/GE/AU at Plzeňský Prazdroj
    Great and inspiring conference - full of interesting guests, good energy, excellent discussions. There are plenty of conferences where you get an invitation, but you really can't go wrong with this event. The time spent at the conference makes up for the value added from it. I keep D&I Shapers fingers crossed so the second year is also the TOP!
  • Gabriela Labíková

    I would like to thank for the opportunity to participate in the DEI Forum, which was not only inspiring, but in many moments breathtaking. I came to it full of expectations and I was leaving with strong believe that there is no need to wait and delay my dreams any longer - it's time to invest my energy into making them a reality.
