Reaching Out Events
ROMBA Conference 2023October 5-7, 2023 Chicago, IL
The ROMBA conference is the world’s largest gathering of LGBTQ+ business students and alumni. The event educates, inspires, and connects our community through C-suite panels, workshops, competitions, a host of receptions, and a career fair with 100 corporate partners across industries recruiting LGBTQ+ MBA talent.
Reaching Out runs programming year-round so you can keep building your network with students, alumni, and corporate partners.See All Events
There's still so much more to learn from others, which ties into my lifelong goal of learning and sharing what I've learned. After obtaining my MBA at the end of this year, I hope to become even more involved in future ROMBA events!
Having attended the ROMBA conference this year, I felt that everyone involved with Reaching Out was so kind, intelligent, successful, and welcoming, and I definitely want to be part of that.
"The ROMBA Conference in 2017 was the first time I had seen a gathering of incredibly intelligent, motivated, and diverse leaders from the LGBT+ community, especially LBT+ people! I left feeling so motivated to be a leader in the business world."
Engaging in ROMBA provides an opportunity to bring your whole self to interactions with others, allowing me to be at ease and appropriately confident throughout my interviewing experience. You will not find an opportunity to interact with an audience of this caliber at any other networking event, job fair, conference, or seminar.
In the challenging (and seemingly never ending) period of recruiting, getting front-row exposure to employers, advice, referrals, or simply email check-ins from ROMBA gave me the needed morale boost that kept me going.
I attended ROMBA as a panelist and a prospective MBA student. ROMBA is where I was inspired by so many people from our community that pursuing an MBA was the right next step for me.
I continue to be inspired day in and day out by fellow members of the ROMBA community I am still in touch with.
