Tepper School of Business at CMU | Groups




Out&Allied's Mission:

  1. Provide a supportive environment to enhance the social, academic, and career experiences of current and prospective LGBTQ students, allies, and partners at Tepper.
  2. Establish relationships and foster dialogue with employers and alumni who value a diverse workplace.
  3. Equip future business leaders to be advocates in the workplace.
  4. Link the social and professional network of Out&Allied to similar groups from other business schools and the greater community.

We actively participate in the Reaching Out MBA (ROMBA) Conference in the fall every year. A career counselor from the Tepper Master Career Center accompanies us to ROMBA as we meet fellow MBA students from across the country and companies interested in recruiting top LGBTQ and active ally students.


What can you expect from Out&Allied in 2020?

- Welcome Weekend is a time for all admitted students to come and meet current students as well as other prospective students. This weekend is our opportunity to share just how proud Out&Allied is of our community and our allies.

- Welcome BBQ is held the first week of September and kicks off the beginning of the school year and welcomes the new class to the Tepper School.

- Pink Party is an annual social event to raise awareness around breast cancer research and celebrate National Coming Out Month.

Plus many more social, educational, and professional events in the works!
