Who are we?
Out in Business (OIB) is a newly revived LGBTQ+ student organization at Northeastern! During the spring of 2020, 3 students came together with the goal of forming a queer community within the business school. Through speaker events, workshops, and social outings we want to help every LGBTQ+ individual within the D'Amore-McKim break into, and succeed within, the business world.
What do we do?
OIB's events rest on three pillars: personal development, community engagement, and professional relations. Through workshops and student mentors, members of OIB can hone both their hard and soft skills. Social events and community service opportunities can connect members of the club with the larger queer community on campus and in Boston. Speaker events and professional mentors help OIB members learn how to best break into the business world and navigate unique challenges.
Who can join?
OIB is a collective of students interesting interested in both the business world and the LGBTQ+ community. To reflect the accepting and open community we want to cultivate, OIB is open to all LGBTQ+ individuals as well as allies who are interested in business. Not sure if OIB is the right community for you? Come to one of our bi-weekly meetings or events to find out!
