Is your business 51% or more LGBT-owned? If so, you don't want to miss this webinar to learn more about how to become an LGBT certified business enterprise (LGBTBE®). The LGBTBE® certification gives LGBT business owners a host of opportunities to enhance your visibility with corporations seeking to do business with LGBT suppliers. The LGBTBE® certification allows business owners access to contracting opportunities with many Fortune 500 companies and can help you expand the scope of your business through supplier diversity.

In this webinar, participants will learn more about the LGBTBE® certification and how to get certified from our presenter, Sabrina Gill Kent, Senior Vice President, with the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC). The NGLCC is the official certifying body for the LGBTBE® certification.

Participants will also hear from Brian Hall, Manager of Supplier Diversity and Outreach and Small Business Liaison, with our corporate partner, Shell Oil Company.

Topics to be covered in this webinar:

  • How do you get LGBTBE® certified?
  • What are the business opportunities with the LGBTBE® certification?
  • What is the role of a prime contractor versus a subcontractor?
  • How can you do business with Shell and other companies that recognize the LGBTBE® certification?  Where do you start?

We are proud to partner with the Texas LGBT Chambers of Commerce on this webinar.
