NGLCC National Legal Partnership

An NGLCC corporate partnership designed specifically for law firms to maximize supplier diversity and D&I opportunities. 

The NGLCC National Legal Partnership provides a unique opportunity to interact with LGBT and allied members, the LGBT business community, and NGLCC corporate partners who value inclusive diversity measures. These three audiences allow National Legal Partners to grow their firms through (1) recruitment and retention of LGBT talent, (2) purchases that support LGBT businesses, and (3) the cultivation of new clients.
Within an industry that has maintained a strong commitment to inclusion, partnering with the NGLCC is a logical next step for many law firms that seek to advance their diversity values while also attracting and maintaining Fortune 1000 clients by mirroring their inclusion practices.
As a National Legal Partner, a law firm may participate in the NGLCC Supplier Diversity Initiative in addition to receiving membership benefits created specifically for the legal industry. Partnership includes:
  • Representation on the NGLCC's Corporate Advisory Council, alongside all other NGLCC Corporate Partners, to address topics at the intersection of corporate needs and the LGBT business community.
  • Significant visibility as a partner of the NGLCC and the LGBT business community through regular communication efforts and highly active networking events across the country.
