FAIR SHARE
Festival 2024

This year, FAIR SHARE turns five – and we want to celebrate with you!

We’re taking this opportunity to collectively reflect on progress in the sector so far, celebrate what we’ve all accomplished and plot our next steps towards a more feminist social impact sector. And for the first time, we’ll bring together our international and German communities in person. 

So what can you expect? Presentations of the FAIR SHARE Monitors, workshops on Feminist Leadership and other topics, somatic breaks, network meetings, and – of course – a party. There’s something in the three days for everyone!

Find more information and check out the programme below.
