Pride Month @HSG 2020

For the first time in the history of the University of St.Gallen we celebrate a Pride Month. The Pride Month @HSG was initiated by four students (Carmen Jeanguenat, Alexander Köhne Godoy, Andreas Oberholzer, Rebecca Wirbel) and is strongly supported by Unigay, HSG's President's Board and various parts of the HSG administration.


What are our goals with the Pride Month @HSG?

Firstly, it is our main aim to make diversity visible. We're constantly surrounded by grey concrete and are all studying some sort of business related subjects - sometimes people forget that the HSG doesn't only consist of white, cis-male, heterosexual people. Secondly, we want to raise awareness for the topics of gender identity and sexual orientation. Being aware of diversity dimensions is crucial for everyone to create inclusive, high-performing teams. We want that everyone contributes to a culture in which nobody during the lunch break has to fear talking about the weekend with one's same-sex partner. Thirdly, we encourage everyone to be their authentic self. Realising that one has a gender identity or sexual orientation that doesn't fit into the heteronormative frame and eventually coming out to others can be very stressful. The Pride Month @HSG should be a strong sign of support for those struggling right now.


From 6th to 23rd October we'll make sure that you see rainbows all over the campus. Join our events, wear the rainbow pin and be a reliable ally every day.
