LGBTQ at Babson

Babson LGBTQ Action Group

Creating a community that values, supports, and celebrates LGBTQ individuals and their allies.

Babson’s LGBTQ Action Group is comprised of faculty, staff, alumni, and undergraduate and graduate students who are actively advancing Babson's standing as a welcoming community for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning individuals and their allies.

The group is co-chaired by Jamie Kendrioski, Director of International Student and Scholar Services, and Melissa Shaak, Director of Student Financial Services. Christine Yoon M'15, the Graduate Assistant for LGBTQ Program, can be reached at or during her office hours.

Celebrate Pride in Boston and San Francisco

Join Babson's LGBTQ and Ally community to celebrate Pride this June. We had an enthusiastic contingent of students, faculty/staff, and alumni march in the Boston Pride Parade on June 14. And for the first time ever, Babson will be represented in the San Francisco Pride Celebration on June 28-29. 

We encourage all supporters to join in – family and friends, young and old, gay and straight – as we aim to double last year’s numbers to reflect the wonderful momentum in our Babson Pride.

If you will be in San Francisco for their Pride celebration on June 28-29, register to join us in our Pride exhibitor booth.
