On April 22nd, USC Marshall’s GALA had its first LGBT case study and panel. The event was an opportunity for GALA to engage with our broader Marshall peers & allies. It was attended by 60 people, doubling the number we expected. The panelists brought a very diverse perspective that made it a round learning experience for LGBT business students and MBA allies alike. We have received overwhelming positive feedback about the event and plan to continue this moving forward.
