Wharton Alliance's first GBM is this Thursday at 7pm in Huntsman 345. Come learn about our organization which is open to all years and all schools - two of our Board members are in the College and an additional 2 in Engineering! Our first meeting will feature the theme: "The Real World: The Power of Being LGBT." We will discuss what it's like to be LGBT in the workplace and the advantages as well as pitfalls of being a member of this community. We are Penn's portal to LGBT professional life, so don't miss out on a chance to learn more about how to get involved and benefit from club participation! We'll also be having a discussion at the end of the meeting about preparing resumes for the upcoming Out for Undergraduate Business Conference and general recruiting.
