Founding an LGBT Business School Club at Pepperdine’s Graziadio

Posted by / in LGBTQ BUSINESS STUDENT BLOG / No comments yet

 

Earlier this fall, part-time MBA student Frank Hundley contacted Reaching Out with a challenge: Pepperdine, an historically catholic university, did not have an on-campus LGBT group at its business school.  This made it hard for Frank and some of his LGBT peers to connect as well as to leverage specific opportunities for LGBT MBAs.  Frank wanted to change that.

Fast forward five months and Frank has done just that.  Graziadio Reaching OUT is now the second officially recognized LGBT organization at all of Pepperdine (the LGBT Legal Society was the first) and is a club affiliate of Reaching OUT.  Read about how Frank and his peers got the club started and what they are doing for some of their first events!.

Posted by / in LGBTQ BUSINESS STUDENT BLOG / No comments yet

We are thrilled to announce that The University of Minnesota, Carlson School of Management is the 14th MBA program to join the Reaching Out LGBT MBA Fellowship, created as a joint effort between top graduate business schools and Reaching Out to demonstrate that business schools & MBA programs are outstanding opportunities for self-identifying and out lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) young professionals and their active allies to build their careers.

Each Fellowship recipient will receive a minimum $10,000 scholarship for each academic year during his/her full-time MBA as well as free access to various Reaching Out programming (including the annual ROMBA conference), mentoring and LGBTQA leadership opportunities, some of which would be developed specifically for these Fellows.

As part of accepting the Fellowship, the students will also agree to take a national leadership role in planning content for at least one Reaching Out initiative during his/her time in business school.  Learn more about the Reaching Out LGBT MBA Fellowship & Scholarships

We’re thrilled to have Carlson as one of the founding members.  Keep an eye out for a few month additions next month!
