We are happy to welcome IEOut Club to the Reaching Out Club Affiliates this week!
IEOut, the Gay & Lesbian IE Network, is the reference for Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, Transgender (LGBT) and their friends at IE Business School. This network aims to promote and spread respectful attitudes towards the LGBTQ community and to foster the best practices of inclusivity in academia and in the workplace.
Every year, IEOut plans and organizes the LGBT@Work conference. Its members are proud to host this annual symposium and networking event for the past 11 years and share the best practices in the workplace for inclusivity of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender communities.
An exciting event that the club will be participating in this year is the WorldPride 2017 Festival. Including the world’s largest LGBT Pride Parade, the festival will host cultural and exhibition events and an International Human Rights Conference.
IEOut Club now joins the network of European international schools affiliated with Reaching Out along with London Business School, INSEAD, and HEC Paris. Welcome!
Affiliates of ROMBA is a free club membership program for LGBTQ MBA on-campus clubs. This program was requested by the LGBTQ club leaders. Our goal with LGBT Club Affiliates of ROMBA is to better serve LGBTQ-focused programming, better connect LGBTQ MBA club leaders, and better promote lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer clubs to prospective MBAs.
Through the Affiliate of ROMBA program, LGBTQ clubs & their members have easier registration access for the annual ROMBA Conference, are able to join monthly club calls, attend the annual LGBTQ MBA Club Leadership Summit, take part in the annual Friendfactor Challenge (where the winning club wins $5,000) and be on the LGBTQ MBA club listserv. Simply put, it creates stronger connections between clubs, Reaching Out and the LGBTQ MBA community.
LGBTQ MBA clubs can join now simply by (1) sending an e-mail stating your club’s interest and (2) including your 2017-2018 club leaders’ names and contacts.
