Meet the Diverse Chambers of New Jersey! | 9.23.21
The NJ LGBT Chamber is excited to host a two-part roundtable series designed to engage LGBT-, small-, minority-, women-, disability-, and veteran-owned businesses, educate them about available certifications which would help them get more equitable access into corporate and government procurement streams, and encourage them to join local diverse Chambers/organizations in NJ.
Part 2 — September 23rd, 2021 — Meet the Diverse Chambers of NJ
Learn how to leverage your identity to build your brand and gain more opportunities to expand your businesses on a local level!
Hear from fellow small and minority business owners on how being a member of a Chamber helped take their business to the next level!
