Reaching Out: Brazil 2016 Recap

Posted by / in Blog, LGBTQ BUSINESS STUDENT BLOG, Uncategorized / No comments yet

The Reaching Out staff crossed the equator for the second annual Reaching Out: Brazil Conference on May 14. Part-learning, part-networking, part-career fair — our Saturday in São Paulo at FGV-EAESP sped by. We couldn’t have put on such a successful event without our sponsors: McKinsey & Company, AmBev, A.T. Kearney, Goldman Sachs, IBM, J.P. Morgan, and Dow.

In the morning, after a warm welcome from Reaching Out’s Matt Kidd, Brazilian students and young professionals listened to panelists speak about what it means to be out as an LGBT person at work. Then, we placed a spotlight on lesbian, bisexual, and transgender women in our second general session. This community is a double minority in the business world, and several LBT women spoke about their unique experiences and educated their colleagues about the challenges they face.

In the afternoon, we packed into a nearby restaurant for lunchtime networking. Our students and sponsors made great connections while enjoying some great São Paulo cuisine. When we returned to FGV, our program resumed with a focus on the upcoming Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games in Rio de Janiero. We were fortunate to have a representative from Dow (a Worldwide Olympic Partner sponsor) and a member of the Rio 2016 organizing committee speak with one another about the intentional inclusion of LGBT equality in the Rio Games in contrast to the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.

We wrapped up the afternoon with some breakouts on consulting, finance, and technology. Our sponsors answered questions about their industries before sending everyone down to a Career Fair where students and sponsors had the chance to talk and make connections. We really enjoyed being in Brazil for the second year in a row. Many thanks to our sponsors and the staff at FGV-EAESP. We look forward to next year!
