The ROMBA LGBTQ Community Resource Fair is an opportunity to showcase organizations, primarily non-profits, whose missions support the LGBTQ community in a variety of ways ranging from legal to health to entertainment services.

Community Outreach Initiative

When: Saturday, Oct 4th 2:15-5:00PM
Format:  Interactive/Roundtable/Workshop
Location: Regency Room

Long hours, cases, internships... your MBA experiences are forging you into an all-around machine. But these skills extend beyond industry or professional services into a universe of LGBT social impact organizations looking to answer complex questions with constrained resources. Through the Community Outreach Initiative (COI), join teams of 8-10 MBA's to troubleshoot some of the most pressing issues facing the not-for-profit community from corporate partnerships to program redesign and marketing strategy. Facilitated by consultants from McKinsey and Company, COI provides an opportunity not just to meet the organizations that help support our movement, but to provide key insights to help solve complex problems within our community organizations. The session will include a facilitated brain-storming session as well as a report-out from all participating groups.
