NGLCC Global LGBTI Business Week, created by the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce in partnership with leaders & organizations committed to expanding global LGBTI economic opportunity, will be the second annual summit to converge global leaders, economic development and human rights experts, governments, and the private sector to cultivate a more socially and economically inclusive world.

This dynamic, multi-day series of events will focus on sharing new thought leadership and existing best practices for global LGBTI economic empowerment, entrepreneurship, and development. In this, it will highlight innovative and cutting-edge technological solutions to promote entrepreneurship, showcase a dynamic partnership that seeks to fill the evidence-base on LGBTI economic development, and share expertise on using businesses as agents of change.

Premier events will take place in Washington, DC from November 14th to 17th in partnership with the government of Uruguay, along with a variety of regional and international organizations including the Organization of American States (OAS) LGBTI Core Group, the OAS Department of Social Inclusion, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) LGBTI Rapporteurship, the United Nations Office Of High Commissioner on Human Rights, the Business Council for the United Nations, and the United Nations Foundation.
