Join the projecT team to make the HSG more INCLUSIVE

In 2020, we have managed to make a very strong statement for diversity and inclusion on the HSG campus. Rainbow flags and pins could be discovered all over the university. We have reached over 2.6 m media impression, distributed 1000 pins on the campus and about 750 cookies to the public of St.Gallen. Numerous feedbacks show that we have touched hundreds of hearts. With the first edition of the Pride Month @HSG we have founded a new tradition and this calls for a new project team. SAVE THE DATE: 4th - 22nd October 2021

Why join the Pride Month @HSG project team?

  • impact: you can be part of one of the most visible change initiatives on the HSG campus. Your work is visible to the whole HSG community (students, staff, alumni and the public) and leaves a lasting impression. You shape the future of the HSG culture.
  • leadership: Pride Month @HSG is much more than a project. Pride is a movement that inspires, you are the leader of it.
  • experience: you gain valuable experience in project management, strategic thinking and marketing. This is a perfect project to advertise yourself in the recruitment process for internships and entry level positions.
  • network: you will get to know many new internal and external people.
