our mission

OUTreach aims to advance social and professional opportunities for LGBTQ students at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.  We work to build community among Booth's LGBTQ students, and also promote inclusivity on campus through active engagement with our allies.  OUTreach provides mentorship, helps students navigate the recruiting process, connect with alumni, and attend conferences - in addition to throwing some of the best parties on campus, obviously!

OUTreach also provides support for LGBTQ applicants.  Check out the Applicants tab to see how we can help!
