The National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce is the business voice of the LGBT community and is the largest global not-for-profit advocacy organization dedicated to expanding economic opportunities and advancement for LGBT people.
Hampton Roads Business OutReach is the local affiliate for the NGLCC. We are the first recognized affiliate in the Commonwealth of Virginia, and only one of two supported and backed by the NGLCC. HRBOR recognizes that a growing business not only needs a strong local network where business owners live and work, but also business certification and access to all the strategic growth opportunities offered by the national organization.
The LGBTBE certification, being offered later this week, allows businesses opportunities in the corporate and government sector that non-certified businesses would not have access to. It positions businesses to differentiate themselves from competitors. It also allows business owners more immediate access to conduct business outside of Hampton Roads… literally all across the nation and, in some instances, internationally, as the certification is recognized in certain international circles.
Certification training will take place on Thursday, December 15th, 3:00 – 5:00 at the New York Life office at 999 Waterside Drive, suite 1500, Norfolk, Va., 23510. Refreshments will be served.
