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

Today The Economist’s WhyMBA Blog published an article about lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer students pursuing MBAs in Business Schools and mention the LGBT MBA Fellowship and participating school MIT Sloan School of Management.

Here’s an except:

MIT’s Sloan School of Management announced on January 5th one large step to encourage LBGT representation. It will offer a $10,000 fellowship to one or more class members each year from 2017. The fellowship is funded in partnership with Reaching Out MBA, which for its part supplies a support network of LGBT employees in various businesses. Between 20 and 30 students in MIT Sloan School of Management’s present cohort of 800 identify as LGBT, according to Jeff Carbone, the associate director of admissions at the school. The school also has a well-attended and active LGBT society, whose alumni founded Network Q, a networking website for LGBT MBA candidates and students.

The school is the twelfth to offer such a fellowship in conjunction with Reaching Out MBA; a thirteenth, the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth, was announced on January 12th. Two more are likely to sign up by the end of the month, says Mr Kidd. All hope to draw more LGBT students into schools and later, boardrooms.

Help Foster the LGBTQ Business Leaders of Tomorrow.

Participating in regional and national LGBTQ events is crucial for students to build networks outside of their own campuses–where many of them may be one of only a few LGBT students - and to find future jobs with companies seeking out LGBT professionals.

Did you know that with flight, hotel and various registration fees, a typical student spends over $750 to attend a national lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender & queer (LGBTQ) event?

Reaching Out, an 501(c)3 organization dedicated to educating, inspiring and connecting LGBT business students to become out leaders in the workplace, has launched a restricted fund to make LGBT events more accessible to business students.

All donations to this fund go directly to students’ travel & registration for LGBT events. No money is taken out of this fund for overhead, production costs, or any other costs to the organization. 

Every dollar you give goes right to providing the opportunity for an LGBT business student to grow both personally and professionally as an OUT business leader of tomorrow.

Will you help us in our effort to ensure that current LGBT business students can become the out LGBT business leaders of tomorrow?
