Supplier Diversity Workshop with Manitoba LGBT* Chamber of Commerce

Mar 31, 2021
March 31, 2021 12:00 pm - March 31, 2021 12:45 pm

Canada is home to over 28,000 LGBT+ entrepreneurs. Collectively, they generate $22 billion in economic activity and employ over 435,000 people. In other words, LGBT+ business is big business.

When these innovative entrepreneurs are connected with corporations looking to advance corporate social responsibility by diversifying their supply chains – we are collectively reducing barriers, advancing LGBT+ entrepreneurship, and creating a truly inclusive economy. One connection at a time.

Join Canada’s LGBT+ Chamber of Commerce and the Manitoba LGBT* Chamber of Commerce for a Supplier Diversity Workshop.

In this 45-minute, we’ll discuss the state of LGBT+ entrepreneurship in Canada. We’ll learn about supplier diversity – the concept of diverse owned businesses getting certified as certified suppliers and corporations internally championing diverse procurement processes. We’ll also highlight the Manitoba LGBT+ Chamber of Commerce’s and Canada’s LGBT+ Chamber of Commerce’s work to support LGBT+ entrepreneurs and allies.
