Out@Anderson (O@A)

Out@Anderson provides professional development, social networking and advocacy opportunities for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer-identified students and allies at UCLA Anderson.

We connect LGBTQ students and allies within the Anderson network, throughout UCLA and across the greater community.

We are out and proud because the UCLA Anderson School of Management is a safe, supportive and empowering space for LGBTQ MBA students, staff and faculty. Beyond the rich diversity and passion of our LGBTQ community, our strength is in the unquestionable support from our allies across campus. There is much work to be done in providing equality across the corporate sector and beyond, and Anderson gives us the tools we need to make the world a better place for LGBTQ individuals.

Club Events

Reaching Out Conference (Oct. 8-10, Chicago)

The 2015 Reaching Out LGBT MBA & Business Graduate Student Conference provides future lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender leaders from around the world the opportunity to network, learn and improve their skills so they will emerge stronger and more confident in the business world. Leading businesses partner with the conference to show support for the LGBT community and recruit top level talent.

Ask A Gay* Panel (held quarterly)

"Ask A Gay" is a program that has been wildly successful at other top business schools across the country. It is a structured — yet casual — opportunity to ask Anderson's very own LGBTQ++ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and all other self-identifications) community about what it's like to be out, share their personal stories and discuss general topics about LGBTQ++ life/norms/vocab, etc. 

LGBTQ Awareness Week (spring quarter)

In cooperation with the larger UCLA campus, LGBTQ Awareness week brings together LGBTQ students and allies to discuss issues currently facing the LGBTQ community. Various events are held during the week, including an Ally Rally, a Questions for Queers Panel and a Moment of Silence to commemorate the nationwide GLSEN Day of Silence.
