The IE code of ethics states that a lack of respect or harassment of others because of their race, color, ethnic origin, nationality, religion, gender, sexual diversity, age or disability are not tolerated in the IE community, because diversity, Inclusion, and non-discrimination are at the core of IE’s community values.

The IE Out & Allies Club endeavors to make this real by raising awareness and engaging in conversations that aim to broaden understanding and support for LGBTQI* populations worldwide. Our student-led LGBTQI* organization organizes events year-round that are open to all members of the IE Community, and which range from the scholarly and educational to networking and cocktail events to celebrate a break from school.

IE Out & Allies Club hosts the following each year

LGBT@Work: Since 2006, IE Out & Allies Club has proudly presented LGBT@Work, the longest running LGBTQI* work conference in Europe, and third-largest business school LGBTQI* conference in the world. The goal of LGBT@Work is to promote the free exchange of ideas, and to provide a networking platform for LGBTQI* students, professionals, and allies. Speakers, sponsors, and attendees from all around the world join LGBT@Work to create a diverse, international, and welcoming learning experience. Employers like McKinsey & Company also participate in an LGBT@Work CV Book sent to our conference’s top corporate sponsors
