Virtual One on One Matchmaking

November 30, 2022 pm | Online
November 30, 2022 12:00 pm - November 30, 2022 5:00 pm

CGLCC’s One on One matchmaking is a semi annual event that brings together Certified LGBTQ Business Enterprises (LGBTBE’s) and CGLCC Corporate Members for 10 to 15 minute one-on-one networking sessions. During each session LGBTBE’s have the opportunity to present their business to our corporate members and are the perfect opportunity to learn about the offerings of LGBTBE’s in a concentrated environment.
One matchmaking event, on November 30, 2022, will be in a completely virtual setting, and the other in a hybrid setting at the Annual LGBT+ Global Business Summit & Supplier Diversity Forum in 2023.

A 20 minute mandatory session starts things off at 12pm EDT where we will do an overview of the day and TJX will speak via Zoom. The rest of the event will be conducted within the matchmaking platform. Participants can make matches that fit their work schedule throughout the afternoon.

Unlike our previous matchmaking events, this event will be a 2 tiered event where LGBTBE’s can make matchmaking appointments with not only corporate members but also fellow diverse suppliers. The hope is that LGBTBE’s will also be able to network with each other with the goal of stimulating more tier 2 collaboration within our LGBTBE community.

CGLCC has engaged with TJX to sponsor this matchmaking event.

The platform we will use is CGLCC Members get free exclusive use of this for the event.

The use of this platform will allow us to streamline the matching process and ensure that all participants have a smooth experience. Our hope is that we can elevate the matchmaking experience. Participants will be able to view each others profiles on the platform and make direct matches. The platform is also capable of suggesting matches base on industry, capabilities, and keywords. Calendar invites and virtual meetings are integrated into the platform and automatically populate when a match has been confirmed. All matchmaking will be organized on the platform which uses profiles filled out by the participants to make matches base on industry and capability.
