OutScotland is part of a major global business network.

We are proud to announce that in 2020 we have partnered with the NGLCC (National LGBT Chamber of Commerce) in the United States.

The NGLCC is the leading global organization for the LGBT Business Community which spans throughout more then 50 regional LGBTI Chambers throughout the United States and has a global network of over 15 worldwide LGBTI Chambers.

The NGLCC is the exclusive third-party certifying body for Certified LGBT Business Enterprise® (Certified LGBTBE®) companies. Over 1/3 of Fortune 500 companies recognize this certification and partner with NGLCC to create fully LGBT-inclusive supply-chains.

By Partnering with the NGLCC we are dedicated to advancing the economic empowerment of LGBTI people everywhere. Economic empowerment means when an individual or community has an equality of opportunity to participate in, contribute to, and benefit from the formal economy. For too many LGBTI people, discrimination, violence, and stigma limit their ability to participate in, contribute to, and benefit from such opportunities. Throughout the network, NGLCC Global promotes LGBTI economic empowerment for individuals in the labor market, for LGBTI workers in the formal sector, and for LGBTI business owners and entrepreneurs

By working closely with the NGLCC we are also dedicated to advancing inclusive economic growth for LGBTI people. Inclusive economic growth refers to the ways in which employment and financial advances apply equitably across all sectors, social groups, and socioeconomic classes. In contexts where LGBTI people experience exclusion, there is significantly less economic output, which limits any meaningful redistribution into their well-being. NGLCC Global thus works with the private sector and public sector to develop ways to understand and foster inclusive economic growth for LGBTI people.
