LIVE OUT LOUD: March 4th, 5:30-8:30 in Olin Hall

For the first time ever, Pride alliance will be partnering with OUT Network (Babson's Graduate LGBTQ and Ally student organization) to foster a mentorship program! All interested Pride Alliance members will be partnered with a graduate student to make connections and build a network. The mentorship program between the two organizations is meant to be another form of support and to give members advice on life in the workplace (how to come out, how to leverage LGBTQ involvement, etc.)

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
