Dallas, Tex. (07/30/13) – The National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) is proud to announce that OBOX Solutions of Dallas, Tex., an LGBT Business Enterprise® (LGBTBE), has become the first certified LGBT business to join NGLCC as a National Corporate Partner.
NGLCC corporate partners demonstrate their commitment to inclusion through the Supplier Diversity Initiative, which includes purchasing from certified LGBTBEs. OBOX co-owners, Tim and Thom DeWitt have demonstrated their own pledge to supplier diversity by including fellow LGBTBEs in their supply chain.
“There has never been a better time than now to step up and give financial backing to an organization we believe in, one that is working to bring economic equality to all Americans,” said Tim DeWitt, Co-Owner. “We believe in NGLCC, not only as a certified member, but now as a corporate partner.”
Certified since 2008, OBOX has been a leading LGBTBE, attending signature NGLCC events and participating in monthly teleconferences. Additionally, Tim and Thom are serving a two-year term on the NGLCC’s Procurement Council, which works to open up more access and opportunities for LGBTBEs.
“Tim and Thom DeWitt have been engaged business leaders in their North Texas community and have led the way for certified LGBTBEs across the nation,” said Justin Nelson, NGLCC Co-Founder and President. “These are the type of leaders we need in their local communities to actualize change and make a difference where it counts.”
