By partnering with the world's LGBT+ business community, we connect the UK business community to a major global business community. Working together to promote inclusive business for LGBT+ people everywhere.
We are proud to announce that from 2020, OutBritain and OutScotland are official partners of the United States NGLCC (National LGBT Chamber of Commerce).
The NGLCC is the leading global business organization advocating for the LGBT+ business community, spanning more than 50 regional LGBTI Chambers throughout the United States, and with a global network of over 15 worldwide LGBTI Chambers.
The NGLCC is the exclusive third-party certifying body for Certified LGBT Business Enterprise® (Certified LGBTBE®) companies. Over 1/3 of Fortune 500 companies recognize this certification and partner with NGLCC to create fully LGBT-inclusive supply-chains.
By partnering with the NGLCC, we are working together to advance the economic empowerment of LGBTI people everywhere. Economic empowerment means when an individual or community has an equality of opportunity to participate in, contribute to, and benefit from the formal economy. For too many LGBTI people, discrimination, violence, and stigma limit their ability to participate in, contribute to, and benefit from such opportunities. Throughout the network, NGLCC Global promotes LGBTI economic empowerment for individuals in the labor market, for LGBTI workers in the formal sector, and for LGBTI business owners and entrepreneurs
By working closely with the NGLCC we are also dedicated to advancing inclusive economic growth for LGBTI people. Inclusive economic growth refers to the ways in which employment and financial advances apply equitably across all sectors, social groups, and socioeconomic classes. In contexts where LGBTI people experience exclusion, there is significantly less economic output, which limits any meaningful redistribution into their well-being. NGLCC Global thus works with the private sector and public sector to develop ways to understand and foster inclusive economic growth for LGBTI people.
