NGLCC invites leading LGBT business owners, corporate partners, supplier diversity advocates, and community leaders to Washington, DC to join us on Friday, November 16 for our annual National Dinner Awards celebration, which acts as the culmination to our NGLCC Global LGBTI Business Week.

NGLCC is proud to be a nexus point for a community that is constantly raising the bar for diversity and inclusion in the United States and across the globe. To celebrate this year’s many accomplishments and encourage us to reach ever higher in our efforts, we’ve dedicated our 2018 National Dinner to these trailblazers with the theme “ELEVATE.” Nominate a person or company who you believe has elevated our community in the categories below:

  • NGLCC CORPORATION OF THE YEAR: This award is given to a corporation for their outstanding support and dedication to ensuring fairness and equal opportunity for LGBT suppliers, customers, and employees. The NGLCC Corporation of the Year will have demonstrated an unparalleled commitment to ensuring workplace diversity, equitable marketing efforts, and inclusive initiatives for LGBT suppliers, customers, and employees. Nominate a corporation here.
  • SUPPLIER DIVERSITY ADVOCATE OF THE YEAR: The Supplier Diversity Advocate of the Year has demonstrated a commitment to outreach and inclusion of LGBT suppliers in the diverse supply chain at his or her company. He or she is a tireless advocate on behalf of diverse suppliers. This award applauds the efforts of an individual who is consistent in their commitment to furthering opportunities for growth and development of certified LGBTBEs. Nominate a supplier diversity advocate here.
  • SUPPLIER OF THE YEAR: This award recognizes an exemplary certified LGBTBE for their outstanding contributions to the growth and development of LGBT supplier diversity. In addition, the nominee will have a proven track record of positive benefits from certification, including, but not limited to, educational opportunities realized, hiring of new staff, expansion of the business, growth in client list, and/or work with NGLCC and corporate partners to further the mission of the NGLCC Supplier Diversity Initiative. Nominate a supplier here.


Nominations for the above awards will close on October 24, 2018. 

NGLCC is also excited this year to be accepting applications for AFFILIATE CHAMBER OF THE YEAR to be recognized at our 2018 National Dinner. Unlike the above awards, affiliate chambers must self-nominate by applying for recognition. Applications should submit this form by October 24 to be considered for the Affiliate Chamber of the Year award.
