Members' Monthly Mixer
The nglccNY Members' Monthly Mixer (M3) is THE not-to-be-missed LGBT business networking event each month. Bring your business cards and make powerful connections with hundreds of fellow LGBT and allied businesses owners, Certified LGBTBEs, corporate procurement and diversity leaders, LGBT nonprofits, and even the occasional local celebrity or two. Need any help breaking the ice? No problem: that is what the nglccNY Ambassadors are here to do for you. We know there is no shortage of places in NYC for LGBT people to connect, but when you're at an nglccNY M3 that means you are looking to help your business thrive-- and we have the connections to make it happen.
