Evening at the House of Lords 

Local Lauder alumni and donors to the Lady Barbara Thomas Judge MBA Fellowship Fund enjoyed a lifelong learning event at the House of Lords in London, October 19th. Lord Bilimoria spoke about the history of the House of Lords, a somber look at current affairs and a more optimistic view on the future of India. Candace Johnson discussed space, satellites and India’s future in space. Attendees had the opportunity to meet, mingle, and enjoy food and drink. Read more here.

New affinity group launched 

We are pleased to announce the launch of our newest affinity group, OutLaud, for LGBTQIA+ Lauderites. It joins our three other recently launched affinity groups: Lauder Women, Black@Lauder and BigTech@Lauder., as well as the Lauder Entrepreneurship Ecosystem (LEE). All have the goal of building and strengthening community and providing support for one another. To learn more, click above.


Help us to update the entire Lauder database! Please spend a few minutes to update your alumni profile.

Make sure to share your interests by joining some of the new Affinity Groups.

The more robust our information, the more powerful the Lauder community can be!

We have an app!

We will eventually have our own LIAA-branded app but for now you can search the directory, register for events, and update your profile through the Wild Apricot app. Ignore the branding – it works and will make your mobile life easier! Get the app on Apple or Google.

What a glorious weekend it was! Click here to see the photos; more will be added shortly.
