March 26, 2018

Strategic Diversity Initiatives is proud to announce their recent certification as an LGBT Business Enterprise (LGBTBE®) through the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) Supplier Diversity Initiative. The NGLCC is the nation’s exclusive certifying body for LGBT owned and operated businesses.

“America’s top corporations are eager to do business with the LGBT community,” said Justin G. Nelson, President and Co-Founder of the NGLCC, “which is reflected in the ever-growing list of NGLCC corporate partners.”

With this official certification, the NGLCC, its organizational allies, and corporate partners now nationally recognize Strategic Diversity Initiatives as a diverse supplier. SDI joins the growing ranks of over 790 certified LBGTBEs!

Strategic Diversity Initiatives is now eligible to participate in the NGLCC’s corporate partners’ supplier diversity programs, can take advantage of the vast educational opportunities promoted by the NGLCC, and can work to foster business to business relationships with other LGBTBEs.


The National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) is the only national not-for-profit advocacy organization dedicated to expanding the economic opportunities and advancements for the LGBT business community. With more than 140 corporate partners, and 59 local, state, and international affiliate chambers, NGLCC is the largest LGBT business development and economic advocacy organization in the world.

The NGLCC Supplier Diversity Initiative connects LGBT businesses with the tens of millions of corporate dollars being spent in the LGBT community each year. Today the NGLCC has nearly 140 corporate partners who recognize the LGBTBE designation when making procurement decisions and who all share a commitment to ensuring diversity in their supply chains.
