The SBA partnered with the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC), the exclusive certification body for the LGBT Business Enterprise, to cosponsor a series of LGBT Business Builder education and outreach events around the country that focus on SBA programs and services and the NGLCC LGBT Business Enterprise Certification. This initiative was undertaken in response to a charge from the White House that all federal agencies move toward greater inclusion of historically disenfranchised groups, and focuses in particular real inclusion with real results, making concerted efforts to reach out to people of color, women, veterans, and the disabled within the LGBT community.
