A brief description of the institution’s LGBTQ-inclusive policies, programs and practices:
Babson’s focus on developing entrepreneurial leaders provides the groundwork for students to explore and pursue their passions. Student-created organizations, which include the Pride Alliance (undergraduates) and Out Network (MBA students), sponsor educational, cultural, networking and social events. Babson has active Safe Zone training and events marking National Coming Out Day, Transgender Day of Remembrance, and Day of Silence. Babson sponsors students at regional and national LGBTQ-related conferences. In 2016 Babson celebrated its fourth annual Lavender Graduation and had a strong, wonderfully diverse contingent marching in the Boston Pride Parade. In 2016-17 Babson is piloting a new housing option, LGBTQ+ Neighborhood, where LGBTQ+ students can request a community of neighboring rooms. https://www.campusprideindex.org/campuses/details/108?campus=babson-college
