LGBT@Work Conference & Networking Cocktail After Party
2019 Theme: "Inclusive Leadership"
Casa de America
July 4, 2019

Since 2006, IEOut & Allies Club, IE University's student-led LGBTQ+ & Allies organization, has proudly presented LGBT@Work, the longest running LGBT+ work conference in Europe, and 3rd largest business school LGBT+ Conference in the world.

The goal of LGBT@Work is to promote the free exchange of ideas and provide a unique networking platform for LGBTQ+ students, professionals, and allies. Speakers, sponsors, and attendees from all around the world join LGBT@Work, creating a truly diverse, international, and welcoming learning experience.

LGBT@Work is taking place July 4th, during the heart of Madrid Pride! 
Madrid Pride, popularly known in Spanish as the Orgullo Gay de Madrid and its acronym MADO, is the annual LGBTQ+ pride festival hosted in Chueca, Madrid's historic LGBTQ+ neighborhood. Each year, Madrid Pride takes place during the weekend immediately following June 28, the International Day of LGBT Pride.

2019 THEME: "Inclusive Leadership"
On July 4th, leading LGBT+ professionals from around the world will share their company's best practices, present insight reports, and even walk us through their own personal coming out journeys, sharing what it means to be LGBTQ+ in the industries they represent.

The Conference includes opening remarks delivered by IE University's Executive President, Santiago Iñiguez, an award ceremony, Tedx-Style speeches from globally diverse, gender balanced, LGBTQ+ representative speakers from multiple industries, and a networking after party which includes a tapas-style dinner, open bar, and dancing, and opportunities to directly network with International Corprate Recruters seeking highly qualified LGBTQ and ALLY talent. As a conference participant, you are eligible to submit your CV to the official 2019 LGBT@Work CV Book which will be distributed to our 2019 Corporate Sponsor Recruiting Specialists. Last year, CV Books were given to companies including Google, Amadeus, SAP, and McKinsey & Company (just to name a few) - and most importantly, some of our attendees who participated in the LGBT@Work CV Book were offered job interviews and in some cases were HIRED!

Ticket Price Includes:              
Networking Cocktail after party with attendees, speakers, and corporate sponsors           
Refreshments, dinner tapas-style & open bar
