Our Mission Statement
OUT & Allies in Business is an inclusive and welcoming student-led organization comprised of LGBTQA students within the Smeal College of Business and larger Penn State Community. We strive to further the professional goals of our members by developing and empowering them to become futures business leaders and active advocates in fostering inclusive communities and workplaces. OUT & Allies in Business provides a network and assists students in identifying and targeting diverse LGBTQA-friendly companies by partnering and networking with their employee resource groups, other Penn State LGBTQA organizations, alumni, corporations, and non-profits. In addition, we promote awareness and acceptance of LGBTQA issues through education to the broader Smeal and Penn State community. Finally OUT &Allies in Business will host events that promote awareness as it relates to current events within the political, social, and economic environments.
