Business; The NGLCC is the exclusive, third-party certification body that verifies that eligible businesses are majority-owned by LGBT individuals, and subsequently grants LGBT Business Enterprise® (LGBTBE®) designation to such businesses as part of its LGBT Supplier Diversity Initiative. By becoming a certified LGBTBE, business are able to build relationships with America’s leading corporations, generate prospective business and clients, and collectively team with each other for contracting opportunities.
