LGBTQ MBA Clubs Month of Service

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

During the month of February 2018, Reaching Out is working with clubs enrolled in the Club Affiliates Program to plan events across school campuses aimed at provided support to national and local community organizations. Analysis of previous years of the FriendFactor Competition have shown that there is a need for clubs to participate in more community initiatives to make a lasting impact.  This presents an opportunity for students in the LGBTQ MBA community to demonstrate their dedication to helping the broader LGBTQ movement progress by giving back to organizations focused on social impact. Clubs that decide to participate will sign a pledge committing to take part in community service and volunteering during the month of February.  Look for recaps of the work that the clubs have done next month!

Black History Month

At the start of Black History Month, we would like to acknowledge the importance and value of our Black LGBTQ MBA students, alumni, and business leaders. These members of our community face many intersections of identity, which come not only with challenges, but with great successes. Thank you for your leadership and visibility all year round.

The history of Black leaders is one of trailblazers who have pushed forward and navigated the ever-shifting pendulum of adversity and prosperity.  A great leader empowers others to lead, and through following their work may we all find an opportunity to rise up and make a difference in our community. We encourage you to read not only about the leaders of the past, but the leaders of today, beginning with the list below.
