GSBA awarded $10,000 by NGLCC and Wells Fargo to Support LGBT-Owned Businesses
Grant will fund effort to increase diversity in corporate supply chains

The Greater Seattle Business Association (GSBA) is proud to announce that the chamber was awarded a $10,000 grant on Thursday, August 13th at the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC)'s 2015 International Business & Leadership Conference in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Funded by the Wells Fargo Foundation, this grant was awarded to expand capacity and offer technical assistance to the GSBA's Let's Get Certified outreach and workshop program. The main goal of the program is to foster the development, growth, and sustainability of certified LGBT business enterprises (LGBTBEs®). By becoming a certified LGBTBE, businesses are able to build relationships with America's leading corporations, generate prospective business and clients, and collectively team with each other for contracting opportunities. As corporate America becomes more inclusive and further diversifies its supply chain, certification offers the opportunity for LGBT-owned businesses to differentiate themselves from their competitors.

'The Let's Get Certified program has become a vital resource to our members as they develop their businesses and engage in strategic planning,' said Louise Chernin, GSBA President. 'We are thrilled to receive this generous grant from Wells Fargo and NGLCC which will allow us to expand and enrich our program.'

'Wells Fargo has a rich history of supporting diverse chambers of commerce, and we share their commitment to helping small business owners succeed financially,' said Lisa Stevens, Regional Marketing, Small Business and Pacific Midwest Bank Executive, Wells Fargo. 'Through our partnership with the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC), we are proud to provide funding that will support chamber-led entrepreneur training programs and dedicated resources for education, growth and advancement of diverse business owners in communities across America.'
