What We Do
Q@Haas is deeply embedded in the Haas community. We do a lot, from school-wide parties and educational events for Haas to professional development and hangouts just for Q-identified students and partners. Here are some examples of our programs, events, and treks.
Coming Out Week
Coming Out Week
Every fall, we host a week full of programs to share our experiences with the Haas community, address major issues in the LGBTQ community, answer questions from our allies, and give allies a chance to show their incredible support. It all kicks off with the Coming Out Monologues, one of the highest-attended and most powerful events we host, where the Haas community shows up to support Q members sharing their stories. There’s also an ally event, where our allies discuss how they can show up to support the LGBTQ community at Haas and beyond. They're the best.
Days at Haas party
When Haas needs someone to host a party to showcase our community for admitted students, they come to Q. Obviously.
Haas’ annual drag show for the whole first year class. Q isn’t even the official host… but we help.
We may not all be expert connoisseurs of LGBTQ film… but we try.

Mixers with other programs

Stanford GSB… we like to mix and mingle.
Recruiting and alumni events
Many companies look specifically for LGBTQ talent, so they reach out to Q@Haas to set up events, coffee chats, and interviews for us. We also like to meet and mingle with alumni at our local watering hole, Free House.
Out in Tech
A non-profit which hosts tons of local chapter events. Great
opportunities to network with other LGBTQ professionals!

walk away with a job offer.
We rent a house every year for Haas’s annual ski trip to Lake Tahoe. We welcome friends from other houses in the neighborhood, but
also enjoy some quality hot tub and mimosa time with each other.
…plus many many more informal events such as happy hours, nights out in San Francisco and Oakland, ladies nights, gayme nights, and occasionally even some events during the day!
