Conferences, Events & Networking

The CGLCC helps LGBT+ business owners grow their businesses by providing them with opportunities to connect with each other, as well as with corporations, organization and government bodies looking to do business with a diverse supplier base. And through its global program, the CGLCC also facilitates connections with like-minded businesses and bodies around the globe.

Conferences and events

The CGLCC organizes a national conference, the LGBT Global Business Summit & Supplier Diversity Forum, every year in June. The Summit provides an occasion for certified suppliers to meet directly with corporate sponsors, as well as learn about the latest trends and issues that affect the economy and business.

Other events include trade missions and the annual Black & White Gala.

Workshops and webinars

The CGLCC provides workshops and webinars, on its own or in association with other organizations. The workshops and webinars are aimed at capacity-building and professional development.
