Month of Service: IEOut Club & Allies – IE Business School

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

On Thursday, February 22nd,  IE University’s LGBTQ+ & Allies Club, known as IEOut & Allies – hosted a benefit fundraiser for Fundación Eddy-G. This amazing nonprofit organization is the first and only of its kind in Spain. The Foundation Eddy-G is a shelter home for young LGBTQ+ people between the ages of eighteen and thirty. Many have  been victims of family violence, bullying, or other forms of LGBTQphobia and are currently at the risk of social exclusion.

Tickets were sold to attend and all proceeds from the event were donated to Foundation Eddy-G. Members from the organization came to speak with all attendees, and together were able to raise enough funds to cover all food & grocery expenses for every youth member of the Foundation for an entire week!

Recap: LGBTQ MBA Clubs Month of Service

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

During the month of February 2018, Reaching Out worked with clubs enrolled in the Club Affiliates Program to plan events across school campuses aimed at providing support to national and local community organizations. This presented 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 decided to participate signed a pledge committing to take part in community service and volunteering during the month of February.

Over the next few weeks we will be highlighting each school and the work that they did with a community organization.

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!
