Reaching Out MBA (Reaching Out) has a nearly 20-year history of supporting the needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer MBA and graduate business school students.  Through a year-round series of programming, with the annual ROMBA Conference as the cornerstone, Reaching Out strives to Educate, Inspire and Connect emerging leaders in the business world.

Our ROMBA Conference, held each fall in a major US city, has grown to include over 1,400 individuals – including LGBT MBA and graduate business school students, LGBT pre-MBA students, human resources and diversity professionals from nearly 100 corporations, universities and non-profits and, ERG members from various organizations, and active allies in the fight for LGBT equality.  Reaching Out also creates and supports a growing variety of programs and events on a year-round basis to ensure that our networks of students and employers continue to collaborate and find new ways of interaction moving forward.  These include the LGBT MBA Student Treks, Reaching Out Brazil, Queer Women in Business and the Reaching Out LGBT MBA Fellowship program currently at 17 business schools throughout the US.

Posted by / in LGBTQ BUSINESS STUDENT BLOG / No comments yet

As we start our 2015-2016 cycle, we are thrilled to announce that Corporate Partnership Information is now available for the 2015 Reaching Out LGBT MBA & Business Graduate (ROMBA) Conference.  This year’s conference, our 18th annual, will be held in Chicago from October 8 – 10, 2015 at the beautiful Hyatt Regency Chicago - and we expect more than 1,400 lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer current, prospective and alumni MBAs (and related business graduates) at the conference.

It should never go without saying that our corporate partners’ support of our work in the form of partnerships, support and advice, is always gratefully appreciated. Their involvement in helping us educate, inspire and connect LGBT MBA and graduate business students, promotes a robust diversity not only in your workforce but also in our lives.  They have also helped us grow into year-round program offerings for students and professionals including events such as Summer Industry Treks for Admitted LGBT MBAsReaching Out: Brazil, and Queer Women in Business.  With more events to be announced, we are incredibly excited for 2015-2016 and invite you to join us on these new initiatives.
