The LGBTIQ Voices in Business: Together for a Successful Future
As a one of three founding partners of EGLCC – The European LGBTIQ Chamber of Commerce, we are delighted to invite you to the first-ever online annual conference: The LGBTIQ Voices in Business: Together for a Successful Future. Please save the date March 31. The formal invitation will follow and of course you will find it here on our website.
The European LGTIQ Chamber of Commerce was founded in June 2018 by 3 national LGBTIQ Business units, the SGLCC (Scandinavian LGBT Chamber of Commerce), the IGLBC (the Italian GLBT Business Chamber) and East meets West, the Vienna based organisation with a clear Central & East European focus. In July 2019, EGLCC was joined by the GGLBC (German LGBTIQ* Business Chamber).
EGLCC has its official seat in Stockholm, Sweden and is open for each nationally based LGBTI Chamber of Commerce in Europe that subscribes to the principles as put down in the Vienna Declaration on LGBTIQ Businesses.
The EGLCC defined 4 key aims:
- They want to make the European LGBTIQ businesses more visible so that they become a relevant group in their local business community
- They want to increase the social acceptance of LGBTIQ people in a business environment so that they can become a influential player in their business community
- They want diversity to become a relevant value in the business world which will lead to powerful collaborations and create unique business opportunities
- They want to make clear that coming out in business is not a threat to their existing successes but that it is as valuable as a personal coming out, it makes the businesses stronger, more authentic and more successful
