Out for Undergrad is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is dedicated to helping high potential LGBTundergraduates reach their full potential in their careers. The organization hosts:
- The annual Out for Undergrad Business Conference (OUBC) for students interested in careers in financial services, management consulting, and accounting
- The annual Out for Undergrad Technology Conference (OUTC) for those interested in technology
- A weekend leadership summit to hone the leadership skills of a select group of emerging LGBT leaders
- Regular reunions throughout the country for student and sponsor alumni of our various conferences and summits.
Created in 2004, Out for Undergrad was originally conceived as a recruiting event modeled after the Reaching Out MBA conference. After extremely positive feedback from students and sponsors in its first year, the conference became an annual tradition, growing in size each year. Currently, over 250 students are annually selected through a rigorous application process to attend OUBC in New York City.The OUTC is in its second year, built on the same model as the OUBC. The OUTC is similarly growing in the number of sponsors and students attending, after a successful launch. Each year, 150 students are selected to attend the OUTC in a rigorous application process.
The organization is run by an all-volunteer team of pre-MBA organizers and a national Board of Directors. The organization’s alumni number in the thousands and comprise a cohort of exceptional LGBT professionals in impressive, diverse careers around the globe.
