With more than 80.000 Visitors from the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Trans*, Inter*)-Community and also Person from other cultures and Straights is the Christopher Street Day in Mannheim, one of the biggest Events in and around Mannheim. The CSD is a complete Weekend in the 2nd Week of August. We demonstrate for the LGBT-Rights in Germany and Europe, with Peoples, Fun and Music.
The Project includes all Steps from the planning, sponsoring, realization and finalization. My own Role was the technical realization of any parts of this Event and the communication with partners and sponsors.
Since 2009 I works as a customer engineer and at a part of my time, I helps the diversity management as a LGBT role model a guest speaker (since 2012). My Engagement includes an important Role in the BRG EAGLE and LGBT Taskforce. In the last years, IBM helps me to create and build up a network, with reference person and responsibilities in and around the LGBT Community. This Network helps the society in his work and for the realization of this and other Events.
My part in the Team helps the society the found new sponsors and stabilize the connections between the society and partners. I help the Team to organize his cloud structure and website. At the CSD Weekend, I have the professionals technical Skills and Tools for all Things, regardless of whether Stage, Backstage-Area, Info-Desk and Truck.
I hope my engagement helps all LGBT Peoples, to come out and live her own lives with out of discrimination or other disadvantages. IBM helps me to find my Role in the society and give me the power to helps others.
