On March 25-28, 2020, The ABQ LGBTQ+ Chamber of Commerce will host the Western Business Alliance (WBA) LGBT Economic Summit & Conference. The WBA was founded in 1994 as an opportunity for LGBT chambers throughout the Western United States to advocate on behalf of the LGBT economic equality movement, share ‘best practices’, and serve as the collective voice of the LGBT business community in the West.
The 2020 conference will focus attention on issues facing our business community and the LGBT community at large, including creating influence, working with the LGBT community, LGBT homelessness and housing, social and corporate responsibility, marketing to millennials, transgender entrepreneurship and freelance opportunities, and access to capital for LGBT businesses.
At the center of the WBA LGBT Economic Summit & Conference will be our Lunch Confab, “Improving Opportunities for Small Businesses”, during which Representatives from our community will discuss ways to improve and increase opportunities for small businesses, including ways to improve the effectiveness of supplier diversity.
The WBA includes LGBT chambers and thought-leaders from twenty-two cities, eleven states, and Vancouver, British Columbia. Represented within the WBA are:
