Two New Leaders Join WeAreOpen
Nóra Várady and Helga Sásdi
Hungary’s market leader DEI (diversity, equity, and inclusion) organization, has been expanded with two new leaders. Nóra Várady became the organization's CEO, while Helga Sásdi was named the new chairperson of WeAreOpen’s board of directors.
Várady transferred to WeAreOpen from CEU InnovationsLab, one of the most prominent startup accelerators in the Central and Eastern European region. She noted that WeAreOpen’s thought leadership can have a serious social impact locally, adding that real change begins at the level of micro-communities, but the creation of the foundations of openness within WeAreOpen’s business community can ignite positive change in the wider society.
Helga Sásdi is the CEO of Publicis Groupe Hungary and co-head of Publicis Le Pont, which unites the Czech, Polish, and Hungarian expert centers of Publicis. From January 2023, she holds the position of chairperson of WeAreOpen’s board of directors in addition to her current roles. According to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal, her commitment is both value-based and business-based: as the leader of the country's largest creative and media market player, she believes that diversity and inclusion are the basic conditions for outstanding business operations.
In addition, Márton Beck, communication strategist and founding member of MindMiners Collective has joined WeAreOpen as a strategic adviser.
"In today's world, the basic expectation of workplaces is that employees are judged based on their performance regardless of skin color, religion, gender identity or sexual orientation - that is, to operate in an open manner. With the arrival of Helga, Nóra, and Marci, I think that the relationship between WeAreOpen and the domestic corporate sector will rise to a new level," said Péter Árvai, founder of WeAreOpen and honorary chairman of the Board of Directors.
