Last year the BeNeLux LGBTIQ+ Business Chamber (BGLBC) was established to unite and validate LGBTIQ+ entrepreneurs so that they can participate in existing or new Supplier Diversity programs. Similar Chambers exist in the Nordics, Germany, Central and Eastern Europe, and Italy, and these are united under the umbrella of EGLCC, the European LGBTIQ Chamber of Commerce. There are numerous chambers outside of Europe too, notably in North and South America.
Four experts and business professionals will give insights to supplier diversity practice from different perspectives, followed by a Q&A. By the end of the event, you will know why supplier diversity and inclusion matters. You will understand what is the importance of LGBTIQ+ Business Chambers, their objectives and their work (beyond supplier diversity).
And finally, you will learn why to engage with LGBTIQ+ suppliers, what are the business advantages and why it is important for a social change.
This hybrid event, co-hosted by the BeNeLux LGBTIQ+ Business Chamber and Workplace Pride was made possible with generous support from EGLCC, the European LGBTIQ Chamber of Commerce and GGLBC, the German LGBTIQ+ Business Chamber.
