Black. Queer. & Successful. A Discussion on Pride, Race & Business Opportunity

“As the NGLCC celebrates Pride Month and also commits to service to elevate Black leaders in the LGBT business community, the NGLCC Communities of Color Initiative (CoCi) and Trans Inclusion Task Force (TITF) have teamed up for a special presentation on Wednesday, June 24. In order for all of us to achieve our maximum potential as business owners, corporate leaders, advocates, and citizens, we must grapple with the systemic racism and race-based biases that have kept us apart. Join us for a conversation with two Certified LGBTBE® owners as they discuss their journeys in launching and growing their companies as Black LGBTQ entrepreneurs with members of the NGLCC Supplier Diversity and Stakeholder Engagement Center teams.

Speakers included:

  • Moderators: Alicia Greene, Manager of Supplier Diversity, NGLCC; Sean Franklin, Manager of Stakeholder Engagement, NGLCC
  • Braxton Fleming, Founder & CEO, Stealth Bros & Co.
  • Endia Dickerson & Nastashia Matos, Owner & General Counsel, Women Builders Group (WBG)”
