Annual Programs

Arber Mavraj ’14

“The LGBTQ Action Group provided funding for me to attend the Out For Work Conference where I learned how to fully be myself in a personal and professional context. I credit this wonderful experience with motivating me to come out to family and friends.”

— Arber Mavraj ’14

Matt Marazzo ’14

“Being a member of the LGBTQ community at Babson forced me to work harder to find my niche and define the person I wanted to become. The diverse community at Babson demands that you keep your mind open to new ideas, which is perhaps the most valuable effect of diversity.”

— Matt Marazzo ’14
