On the 12th of March, the gays and lesbian network in London Business School hosted the first European MBA diversity event, inviting MBA LGBT students and alumni from all top Business schools in Europe.
The goal of this initiative is to build a common network across all European Business Schools involving current LGBT MBA students and alumni.
In the event there were speakers from companies that value diversity initiatives such as BCG and Goldman Sachs. The representatives of the companies provided a perspective to MBA students and alumni from all Europe of the role diversity plays in such companies and what their LGBT employees’ network inside the companies do.
In the event there were almost 80 participants arriving from all Europe (and even from schools in the U.S) including four representatives from IE, members of the IEout club (students and alumni) who enjoyed a British hospitality and discussed further mutual events in the future with this new European network.
