The Canadian Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (CGLCC) is hosting its 3rd Annual LGBT Supplier Diversity Forum on June 15, 2016 at the Bram & Bluma Appel Salon, Toronto Reference Library. This event brings LGBT-owned business enterprises and other diverse suppliers together with leading corporations from across North America to learn, exchange ideas, network and do business with each other.
Jonathan Lovitz from the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce in Washington DC, along with other panelists, will speak about the benefits of Supplier Diversity. Many corporations are actively seeking to diversify their supply chains, so the Forum is an opportunity for LGBT and other diverse business owners to meet with these companies.
Corporate partners participating include TD Bank Group, RBC, Bell, Kellogg Company, Sodexo, EY, City of Toronto, BMO, and the federal and provincial governments.
