Announcing Two Fall Treks for LGBT MBAs & Business Graduate Students!

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

Building on the success of our series of Summer Treks for Admitted LGBT MBA & graduate students, we will add two fall treks for 2015 with one in Boston (Nov 6) and one in Seattle (Nov 13).

These treks are designed to be a learning experience about companies and job opportunities for LGBTQA MBAs in specific cities that they may want to live in.  Our hope is that attendees will leave with a better understand of their options, a broader network in these cities and companies, and an expanded peer network. Last year multiple students attending treks ended up receiving job offers from companies they visited.

Attendance to the trek is done by application only with an absolute maximum of 20 attendees. All attendees must be current LGBT or active ally MBAs/business graduate students.

Companies that on the Boston trek include Biogen, Deloitte, Liberty Mutual, P&G.  Companies that may be featured on the Seattle trek include Amazon, Microsoft & Starbucks.  We will confirm Seattle companies over the coming month.

We are excited to announce that the 2015 LGBT MBA Minneapolis (June 25-26) will include Target, 3M, McKinsey & Company, General Mills, United Health Group, and 1 more potential company.

This trek is designed as a learning & networking opportunity for admitted & current lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer MBAs interested in the marketing, consumer packaged goods (cpg) and retail industries to better understand what options they might consider within the industry, meet other LGBTQ individuals admitted to MBA programs around the country, and network with LGBTQ marketing & retail MBA alumni and professionals.  This trek will consist of panels, workshops and other sessions with some of our partner firms.  Last year’s attendees met with the CMO of General Mills, got to tour the 3M Innovation Lab, had a retail workshop with Target and much more.

Up to 20 spots will be available. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis; we will do our best to respond within 10 business days. Student may request limited support from Reaching Out’s LGBTQ Student Fund if unable to otherwise attend.
