Columbia Business School Holds LGBT Ally Week

The schools' annual Ally Week celebrates those who support the LGBT community.

Columbia Business School's Ally Week focuses on the diversity of its student body and the allies who support the schools' LGBT community.

The annual week-long event was hosted last week by the school's LGBT Business Association, Cluster Q.

The program of events included a workshop on how to be an ally, as well as info sessions like “Ask a Q Anything”, where members of Cluster Q answered questions submitted by allies about the coming-out process, politics and LGBT identities.

Cluster Q is an open and welcoming community for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer students, faculty members, and administrators.

The organization offers a range of social and professional events for its community throughout the academic year, which includes the largest representation of straight allies among all business schools, according to the CBS website.
