Certification is the first step in building relationships through corporate supplier diversity. 

NGLCC helps certified LGBT Business Enterprises (LGBTBEs) move their businesses along the certification continuum toward those relationships that could offer them the opportunity of a lifetime. 

By becoming a certified LGBTBE, businesses are able to build relationships with America's leading corporations, generate prospective business and clients, and collectively team with each other for contracting opportunities. As corporate America becomes more inclusive and further diversifies its supply chain, certification offers the opportunity for LGBT-owned businesses to differentiate themselves from their competitors.

The process is quick, easy, and can take less that 20 minutes!
