Our LGBTIQ+ Job & Career fair

is coming to Cologne on the 20th of January 2024!


In summer 2023, more than 3,000 participants met around 150 exhibiting companies at STICKS & STONES in Berlin. Due to the continuing increase in interest and high demand, the cosmopolitan and tolerant city of Cologne will now become an additional location for STICKS & STONES. We are looking forward to seeing you!


A wealth of employers with hundreds of job offers await you. Get in touch with recruiters from a wide range of industries, find out more about their job advertisements and find out about the corporate culture of the exhibitors.


Our program covers everything about LGBTIQ+ in the workplace: from coming out to how employers can support LGBTIQ+ employees. Our speakers will inform and discuss all questions regarding job applications and careers in start-ups, medium-sized and large companies.


What are your strengths and how can you develop further? Which profession suits you best? How can you cut a good figure in job interviews? Our coaches will give you valuable tips in free sessions! Registration for the coaching sessions on site.
