We would like to invite you to the inaugural event of the BGLBC in Amsterdam and online. The entry is free of charge.

Last year the BeNeLux LGBTIQ+ Business Chamber (BGLBC) was established to unite and validate LGBTIQ+ entrepreneurs so that they can participate in existing or new Supplier Diversity programs.

Four experts and business professionals will give insights to supplier diversity practice from different perspectives, followed by a Q&A. By the end of the event, you will know why supplier diversity and inclusion matters. You will understand what is the importance of LGBTIQ+ Business Chambers, their objectives and their work (beyond supplier diversity). And finally, you will learn why to engage with LGBTIQ+ suppliers, what are the business advantages and why it is important for a social change.

The speakers:

Alfred Verhoeven, Co-Founder, BGLBC
David Pollard, Executive Director, Workplace Pride
Pavel Subrt, Co-Founder, EGLCC
Ellen Jansen, Founder, Chappower4U
Peter Zerp, Supplier Inclusion & Diversity Europe Lead, Accenture
This hybrid event, co-hosted by the BeNeLux LGBTIQ+ Business Chamber and Workplace Pride was made possible with generous support from EGLCC, the European LGBTIQ Chamber of Commerce and GGLBC, the German LGBTIQ+ Business Chamber.
