Our LGBT student community is supported by an active, vocal ally culture—ensuring an open and inclusive environment at Berkeley–Haas. You will feel comfortable showing up to Haas as yourself every day.
The openness and genuine interest of Berkeley MBA classmates encourage LGBT students to share their stories, leading to greater understanding and support of LGBTQ issues at Haas and across the UC Berkeley campus.
Berkeley's proximity to San Francisco—the world's epicenter of LGBTQ activity and social rights movements—enables students to get involved in LGBT activities not just within Haas, but also within the larger community.
Our students also get to hear directly from faculty thought leaders at Haas and across the UC Berkeley campus who are conducting the latest research on LGBTQ issues. The ability to hear the findings first-hand and in real time provides opportunities for students to contribute to this research, and to drive the world forward in awareness and understanding.
Q@Haas is a very active student club that serves the LGBT community at Berkeley-Haas. The club has four main goals:
Berkeley-Haas actively collaborates with Reaching Out, an organization that educates, inspires, and connects LGBT MBA students across the United States.
The Reaching Out LGBT MBA Fellowship—which offers a $10,000 minimum scholarship per academic year—was created as a joint effort between top business school programs and Reaching Out to demonstrate that business schools are outstanding opportunties for out LGBT young professionals and their active allies to build their careers.
