The Annual ROMBA Conference provides lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) MBA, related grad students, and alumni from around the world the opportunity to network, learn, and improve their skills to foster the next generation of LGBTQ leaders in the business world.

This conference is designed for current, alumni/professional, and prospective LGBTQ MBAs, business graduates and their active allies.

How Do I Get a Student Access Code?

There are two ways to get an access code:
(1) Through your on-campus LGBTQ club if it is an Affiliate of Reaching Out. Don't know the club leaders? Email us and we'll introduce you.
(2) If your school's LGBTQ Club is not an Affiliate of Reaching Out, you can complete this application.

Professionals - you don't need a code!

Not a Member of the LGBTQ Community?

Please note that the Reaching Out LGBTQ MBA & Business Graduate Conference is a conference for current, alumni and prospective lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer graduate students (MBAs and other graduates all encouraged to attend). We want to keep the conference an inclusive environment for both LGBTQ students and active allies alike.

A large number of participating companies are exclusively seeking LGBTQ talent, which is difficult to identify through other recruiting channels. As a result, this is not the best environment for someone outside of the LGBTQ community to try to connect with employers. LGBTQ students wishing to register should ask their on-campus club for an access code.

What is the 20th ROMBA Gala Celebration?

This year on Saturday, October 14th in addition to programming at the standard ROMBA Conference, we will hold a day of content specifically for LGBTQ MBA alumni/professionals leading into a special 20th Gala Dinner & Celebration that is for both students and alumni!

The gala celebration will include a pre-dinner open bar reception, a dinner with speaker Anderson Cooper, and a post-dinner dance party with a 2-hour open bar.

Not only is this is an event that people will remember for years to come, it will be a gathering of members from the over 10,000 LGBTQ alumni who have been part of the Reaching Out community since it's founding.

All proceeds from this event will go to the Reaching Out Annual Fund, which ensures that for years to come Reaching Out will be able to bring its mission driven programming outside of the ROMBA Conference, including Out Women in Business, the LGBTQ Club Affiliate Program, LGBTQ MBA Treks, the LGBTQ MBA Fellowship and more.

As there is a dinner involved we will NOT be able to sell any further tickets after October 6th. This means no on-site ticketing will be available.
