FALL TREKS FOR LGBT CURRENT STUDENTS

Hello world! Please change me in Site Preferences -> This Category/Section -> Lower Description Bar

Building on the success of our series of Summer Treks for Admitted LGBT MBA & graduate students, we will hold two fall treks for 2016 with one in Boston and one in Chicago.

These treks are designed to be a learning experience about companies and job opportuinties for LGBTQA MBAs in specific cities that they may want to live in.  Our hope is that attendees will leave with a better understand of their options, a broader network in these cities and companies, and an expanded peer network. Last year multiple students attending treks ended up receiving job offers from companies they visited.

Space in treks is limited.  Current LGBTQ students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible to participate. There is no cost to participate, however attendees will be responsible for flight and hotel accommodations (Reaching Out may be able to provide some travel support from our LGBTQ Student Fund).

Please email info@reachingoutmba.org for questions or for more information.
