SGLCC - the Scandinavian LGBT Chamber of Commerce

SGLCC – the Scandinavian LGBT Chamber of Commerce

Given the history of LGBT rights and development in Sweden and Scandinavia, there has for quite some time been a need for a meeting platform between the corporate sector, the community and their businesses. Although the civil rights for LGBT-people in the region are well protected legally, there is a major gap in communication between these two parts of society.

The SGLCC aims to narrow this gap. We will provide a forum for communication and understanding between corporation and the LGBT-community, in real life meetings as well as on-line.

We will provide certification for LGBT-businesses, education and in-house training, as well as advice for corporate members and be a source for procurement and staff and to share best practice.

  1.  To empower small business-owners and increase their possibilities to become international suppliers

  2.  Increase awareness of LGBT-issues in the private sector

  3.  Prove the actual business value of LGBT-inclusion

  4.  Create a platform to connect LGBT-businesses with large national and international corporations

  5. As an affiliate to NGLCC, provide certification for LGBT-businesses.

SGLCC is proud to be connected to NGLCC Global as an affiliate, as well as to the other GLCCs in the network, as well as AmCham Sweden and we fully support the idea of Global LGBT equality through economic development.
