About SloanLGBT

What is the mission of Sloan LGBT?

SloanLGBT is a student organization established to foster and promote an open and honest environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered students, partners, faculty and staff in the Sloan community. We seek to promote positive images of the LGBT community and to foster opportunities for personal and professional growth regardless of sexual preference or sexual identity.

We achieve this by:
  • Promoting positive visibility in the Sloan community
  • Fostering a sense of community among Sloan's LGBT students
  • Providing a contact point for gay-friendly companies
  • Networking with professionals outside of Sloan
  • Creating opportunities for socializing with other LGBT students (e.g. MIT, Harvard, BU)
  • Becoming a resource for professional issues (e.g. by hosting seminars on being out in the workplace, benefits issues, financial planning, etc.)
  • Establishing a resource for general information (e.g. by hosting a web page with links to resources for those questioning sexual identity or for non-gay professionals interested in gay workplace issues)
  • Creating a community of Sloan LGBT Alumni
We offer a variety of programs and events to our members:
  • Speakers & Workshops
  • Networking events with alumni and other professionals
  • Recruiting events
  • 1st and 2nd year mentorship programs
  • Social events
