MIT Sloan’s LGBT Fellowship Opportunity

It’s been a little over a month since a group of ¬†Sloanies, including the two of us, ¬†flew across the country to SF. We were converging with many of our LGBT MBA counterparts for the Reaching Out MBA Conference (ROMBA). Like last year’s get-together in New Orleans, this ROMBA was a mix of recruiting efforts, LGBT advocacy sessions, and lots and lots of parties. Nine of us from MIT Sloan — both first and second years — shared tips and encouragements between the interviews and networking events. Recruiting events such as this one are a tremendously important part of the effort to level the playing field for LGBT students.

Towards that end, Sloan has joined with other top MBA programs to participate in the Reaching Out MBA Fellowship program. Recipients will receive at least $10,000 in scholarship funds and access to ROMBA programming, mentorship and leadership opportunities. For participation in the program, interested students should apply through Sloan.

Sloan LGBT strives to provide our LGBT classmates with these kinds of recruiting options in and outside of Sloan, as well as Sloan specific community building opportunities. We hope to foster an inclusive environment where LGBT individuals can feel accepted by the Sloan family at large, the way we have these past two years.
