The Transgender & Gender Expansive (TGX) Initiative works to convene a group of diverse leaders that will improve and advise upon efforts to procure goods and services from transgender, gender non-conforming, non-binary, and gender expansive business owners, with the ultimate goal of economic empowerment for some of the most vulnerable — yet most innovative– members of the LGBTQ community.
