IE LGBT@Work NYC

IE University proudly invites you to LGBT@Work NYC, an international forum inspired by our student-led LGBT@Work conference, for LGBTQ professionals to explore what it means to "Lead Out Loud."

Why LGBT@Work NYC?

On the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the Stonewall riots and the first World Pride in North America, IE is excited to offer a unique networking platform for the free exchange of ideas from international LGBTQ professionals, alumni, and allies. This is the first time IE has presented an LGBT@Work satellite event in North America.

What is LGBT@Work?

Since 2006, IE Out & Allies Club, IE University's student-led LGBTQ organization, has presented LGBT@Work, the longest-running LGBTQ work conference in Europe and the third-largest business school LGBTQ conference in the world.

 

Meet the LGBT@Work NYC Panelists

Our incredible panelists will share best practices, international experiences, insight reports, and their own stories.
