Our global initiative dedicated to advancing equity and inclusion for the LGBTQ+ community




Educational Courses and Certification


We’re partnering with the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) to offer free educational courses designed to help LGBTQ+ entrepreneurs grow and scale their businesses. From navigating your cash flow to marketing in a digital world, these guided sessions focus on addressing immediate and long-term financial needs and building resiliency. Learn more and register for the courses.

Together, we’re also certifying 100 LGBTQ+ business enterprises. Chamber membership and certification fees will be sponsored by our Office of LGBTQ+ Affairs and distributed through the NGLCC. Becoming certified as an LGBT Business Enterprise® (LGBTBE®) can open the door to new business growth opportunities.
