AGENDA (subject to change)

8:15 AM - REGISTRATION

9:00 AM - WELCOME & CLUB INTRODUCTIONS

10:15 AM - IMPACTING THE GREATER LGBTQ+ COMMUNITY - How can you connect your club to the broader community? Learn how to leverage events and activities in partnership with nonprofits, corporations, and other organizations to support the broader LGBTQ+ Community.

11:15 AM - BREAKOUT - DRUMMING UP NEW MEMBERS: ENGAGING WITH PRE-MBAs - In a time where MBA applications are rising, we have the potential to make our respective business school communities more diverse than they’ve ever been. But what is the best way for us to engage with pre-MBA LGBTQ+ students? Are there any takeaways from remote learning/work that we can leverage here?

11:15 AM - BREAKOUT - LGBTQ+ ADVOCACY & THE ROLE OF MBAs - LGBTQ+ MBAs need to be advocates and activists in an increasingly hostile social and political environment for LGBTQ+ folks.
