HIP Carousel 2021 stays virtual

The annual “Frauenwirtschaftstage” event, an initiative of the Ministry of Economy in Baden-Württemberg, is once again in the planning stages, and HIP will be creating another great Carousel gathering (our 7th Edition), to help promote women and their professional development.

Yes, it will still be online… we want to avoid any eventual last-minute change in the format due to still unknown presence of Corona. Being virtual the event is open for women from other regions and everybody is welcome!

We will be expanding from our super online experience last year and going even more innovative this year. This includes brand new interactive formats and a program determined by our participants – collective intelligence at its best. This year you can choose what you would like to work on!

How does that work?

Meet & Greet: virtual networking on Oct 15th (5-9pm CEST)

We will begin on Friday evening October 15th from 5pm on for a creative networking session. To facilitate this we’ve found, and have been playing with, a platform called Spatial.Chat. This platform allows us to meet virtually with the freedom of wandering from room to room between distinct deco and moods, meeting up with whoever tickles our fancy. It’s great fun!  Check it out here.

So Friday will be devoted to free networking to experience the Spatial Chat platform.  But we also want to focus on which topics are relevant for our Saturday morning program which will then be taking place in a Bar Camp format.

What’s that you ask? A bar camp is an “unconference”. Basically, we will replace our meticulously planned agenda with a grid of possible topics as well as some empty spaces to give you the opportunity to suggest your own topics. You can teach something, or discuss an issue, or test a new workshop idea, or just sit on the sofa in a quiet corner chatting with somebody …

We need you

At a barcamp everybody is asked to contribute. Join the discussions and let us know your perspective. Be brave enough to offer a session yourself. It doesn’t need a lot of preparation as a presentation would. An interesting question or a provocative hypothesis can be sufficient to get a discussion going.

Just a few rules: you have 30 minutes time, you do an interactive session and it is not about promoting your products or services.

Can’t think of a topic? What’s about balancing our various roles in life, digitalisation, management, being an entrepreneur or intrapreneur, wellbeing, health and fun, …
