About Us

WeAreOpen is a nonprofit that creates campaigns with a coalition of businesses to promote diversity and inclusion for millions. It does so because being open is not only the right thing to do, but it is also necessary for businesses to succeed, and it makes people feel safe and happy at their workplaces. WeAreOpen’s mission is to raise public awareness about the fact that diversity is a value for organizations, and to give companies tools to become more open workplaces.

WeAreOpen was founded as an initiative in 2013 by Prezi, espell, and Google. It grew from a volunteer project to an emerging nonprofit social enterprise. To fulfill its mission, WeAreOpen partners with the world’s most acknowledged brands, large employers in Hungary, hundreds of Hungarian SMEs, dozens of local influencers and volunteers. WeAreOpen consults with a wide range of acknowledged scholars and nonprofits from Europe and beyond.

WeAreOpen believes that visible gestures make a difference. So, it designed campaigns that resulted in 1,000+ companies and organizations publicly joining WeAreOpen’s manifesto about openness; 150+ public commitments from companies about improving gender equality at their workplace in a given year; 100+ CEOs, and many company groups, attending Budapest Pride march to support LGBTQ inclusion; and dozens of publicly shared stories from influencers about why it is worthwhile to be open. Moreover, WeAreOpen created OPEN Conference, the first international diversity conference for business leaders in Central Eastern Europe, attracting top global speakers; and it commissioned representative research to better understand the needs and wishes of Hungarian employees.

We are proud to be able to achieve all of these in cooperation with the community of open companies and organizations, with our sponsors, partners, supporters, advisors and friends.
