LAGLCC wins NGLCC Affiliate Chamber of the Year Award

The LAGLCC has won the NGLCC (National LGBT Chamber of Commerce) "Affiliate Chamber of the Year" award!

This prestigious award recognizes an NGLCC Affiliate Chamber for their local community leadership, support and promotion of LGBTBE certification, advocacy initiatives and innovative programming that supports the LGBT business community.
The basis for this award is the LAGLCC's ability to gain LGBTBE recognition in the City of Los Angeles, County of Los Angeles and our two year long effort to establish an LGBTBE spend goal with the Utilities regulated by the California Public Utilities Commission. We are currently working on gaining LGBTBE inclusion in additional municipalities as well as continuing to connect LGBT certified suppliers to opportunities with our corporate partners which range from public utilities to movie studios.
 
Even with a shorter program, the NGLCC B2B summit still over-delivered with insightful workshops, powerhouse speakers, networking til dawn and calls to action to keep fighting for opportunities for marginalized communities.
There were few corporate entities not in the room and the LAGLCC left the summit invigorated with ideas on how to expand programming for our diverse suppliers in the New Year. We also received offers of support from everything from banking institutions to airlines to create strategic alliances. If you’re not already a member of the LAGLCC, you should fix that. We are coming out swinging in 2022!
