The Power of Connection

In spite of continuous economic uncertainty, LGBT+ business leaders are forging ahead. They continue to break new ground, expand their businesses, and strengthen our communities.
This year we celebrate and learn from Unstoppable LGBT+ Leaders as we continue to connect, support and grow Canada’s LGBT+ business community.
CGLCC’s LGBT+ Global Business Summit presents The Power of Connection – building on the premise that a strong and inclusive Canadian economy depends on the success of all Canadian entrepreneurs, small and medium-sized businesses.
This two-day event will help LGBT+ business owners, corporate leaders, professionals and young entrepreneurs better understand the forces and trends that affect businesses day to day.  It will identify and examine the opportunities available for businesses to meet the challenges ahead.
This year’s Summit brings together leaders and experts from government, corporations, entrepreneurship, academia, and global economic development. Through educational programming and networking, the Summit will strengthen the ecosystem that supports the advancement of economic and social development of LGBT+ entrepreneurs and the LGBT+ community at large, in Canada and globally.
