In order to stay connected within the disrupting times of Covid-19, the Global Shapers Salzburg Hub decided to host "Open Shapers" events. Open Shapers is an event-series home to inspiring conversations with pioneers, who share insights & know-how’s into the amazing work they do. Every first Wednesday of the month, Open Shapers aims to connect a diverse crowd of people, and facilitate conversations on thought-provoking topics. This with the main aim to provide a safe platform for people to exchange, and to bring the social impact ecosystem within Salzburg closer together.

Diversity in Action : Leadership Program
The leadership program was hosted by "Diversity in Action (Vielfalt in Aktion)" in cooperation with The Global Shapers Salzburg, City of Salzburg, Salzburg Global Seminar and other partners. It was a five-part training program for 15 participants in 2020. The aim of the program was to impart skills in various competence areas and to further develop the participants' existing leadership skills.

„Black lives matter" rally: 06.06.2020
We had a significant turnout, and the demonstration was peaceful and well-organized. Our team took extra precautions to ensure the safety of all participants, including mask-wearing and social distancing. The messages conveyed by the speakers and demonstrators were powerful and effective, highlighting the need for solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement and the fight against systemic racism and police violence. The event had a positive impact on the local community and beyond, drawing attention to the ongoing struggle for racial justice. While there is always room for improvement, I am proud of what we were able to accomplish and am inspired to continue our efforts in the future.
