LGBT Supplier Diversity - October Town Call

Meeting Description:
Building an LGBT Supplier Diversity Program
Thursday, October 20, 2011 - 12 pm Pacific Time
1 pm Mountain | 2 pm Central | 3 pm Eastern

Working toward an LGBT inclusive workplace now expands beyond the parent company and employees.  The contractors and companies that work with your company can also be influenced by your work toward LGBT equality.  Reviewing contractors to ensure they include sexual orientation and gender identity protections and benefits can show a corporation’s resolve to bring about change.  Providing opportunities through the supplier diversity program at your company can also make a difference.  The NGLCC Supplier Diversity Initiative (SDI) offers businesses a tool to make connections and open doors with America's top corporations and each other. The SDI certifies Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and/or Transgender owned Business Enterprises (LGBTBEs) and works to provide opportunities for LGBTBEs to gain exposure within corporate procurement processes. This certification is established, recognized and can be implemented with minimal staffing on your part.  Come learn about the program and the how you can use it increase your competitive edge in the corporate world and support LGBT workplace around the world!
