NGLCC is turning fifteen, and we're celebrating with our largest gala ever! On Friday, November 17, NGLCC will invite leading LGBT business owners, corporate partners, supplier diversity advocates, and community leaders to the National Building Museum in Washington, DC to join in on the birthday festivities at our annual National Dinner Awards celebration.
Since its inception fifteen years ago, NGLCC has connected top corporations, LGBT-owned businesses, affiliate chambers, and government leaders to foster business development opportunities across the globe through the NGLCC’s Supplier Diversity Initiative (SDI). In addition to celebrating NGLCC's 15 years of advocating for the LGBT business community, this year's gala will recognize the outstanding achievements and contributions made by our certified LGBTBEs and corporate partners throughout the year in three distinct categories:
