The National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) is the only national not-for-profit advocacy organization dedicated to expanding the economic opportunities and advancements of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) business community. With more than 29,000 LGBT and allied member businesses; 130 corporate partners; and 62 local, state, and international affiliate chambers, NGLCC is the largest LGBT business development and economic advocacy organization in the world. As an overview of NGLCC advocacy and programs, focusing specifically on its Supplier Diversity Initiative, this session introduces attendees to the resources and networking available through local and national chambers of commerce, in particular those that target diverse communities. Supplier diversity—as a concept and business model—will be explained as well as how the certification process for LGBT-, minority-, and women-owned businesses operates. Additionally, the presentation will explain the many ways the NGLCC works to connect small businesses across the country. Educational and networking events will be highlighted at both local and national levels to identify how architecture professionals can make connections and develop new business relationships.
