Kick Off the Week at the Embassy of South Africa 

The week starts off with an exploration of an inclusive investment in South Africa from a panel of experts from the private sector, government, academia, and PLUS: The LGBTI+ Business Network in South Africa. Our panel will discuss how South Africa's continued focus on growth will shape the South African economy and the LGBT-owned businesses within the country. 

Dive Into LGBTI Business Development in Mexico

Hosted at the beautiful Mexican Cultural Institute, this panel brings together experts from the NGLCC with the Mexican Federation of LGBT Entrepreneurs (FME-LGBT) for a discussion on inclusive economic growth in Mexico and Central America. With Mexico's growing economy and active LGBT Chamber, this is a conversation that you won't want to miss!
