About the Regional LGBTBE® Roundtable Program
The Regional LGBTBE® Roundtable Program is a supplier engagement & member education program designed to support LGBTBE® Certified Businesses in the greater Houston region.  The program connects a cohort of LGBTBE® Certified businesses through in-person and virtual events to supplier diversity professionals and other certified businesses to help them learn, grow and build their network.  

The program is consistent with the Chamber's mission of supporting members through business growth, education, and advocacy.  As an LGBT Business Enterprise and Chamber member, certified LGBTBE® businesses are automatically eligible to participate in the regional LGBTBE® Roundtable Program, comprised exclusively of certified, LGBTQ+-owned companies.  

Through increasing the number of LGBTBE® Certified Businesses in the region, the program focuses on connecting LGBTQ+ business owners to supply chain opportunities.  The program aims to address the economic inequities and challenges, through supply chain engagement, that LGBTQ+ business owners face because of systemic discrimination and marginalization due to sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression, especially transgender, people of color and women-owned LGBTQ+ businesses.

The program goals include assisting LGBTQ+ entrepreneurs, who have the capacity to participate in supply chain engagement, get LGBTBE® Certified and with training to maximize the certification.

This event is limited to a cohort group participation.  Please email to learn more about how to participate in future programming.
