The National Business Inclusion Consortium (NBIC) is a coalition of the Nation's leading business organizations representing diverse communities.

Spearheaded by the NGLCC and launched in 2011, the NBIC advocates for the business interests of a diverse range of people, including the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender, ethnic minority, disability, and women-owned business communities, representing a total of over $9 trillion in annual consumer spending power and significant contributions to the marketplace and workplace.

The NBIC encourages parity in cross-segment diversity and inclusion initiatives in corporate America, works to identify areas of collaboration among diverse businesses, and advocates for the advancement of policies that support the growth of diverse-owned companies in both the public and private sectors.

Members of the NBIC include:

  • The National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC)
  • Disability:IN
  • The National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC)
  • The National Veteran-Owned Business Association (NaVOBA)
  • The U.S. Black Chambers, Inc (USBC)
  • The U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC)
  • The U.S. Pan Asian American Chamber of Commerce (USPAACC)
  • WEConnect International
  • Women Impacting Public Policy (WIPP)
  • The Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC)

“The times we live in call for more united, we stand alongside NGLCC and NBIC in making a positive impact towards bringing more unity and inclusivity to society.”
