Utah LGBTQ+ Economic Summit "Raising the Rainbow Economy"

September 27, 2019 8:00 AM - 2:00 PM (MDT)


Mark your calendars for Friday, September 27, 2019 as we bring together LGBTQ+ and Ally business owners throughout Utah at our inaugural LGBTQ+ Economic Summit. The day will feature education, enlightenment and business development- oh and we will feed you coffee in the AM and lunch in the afternoon:). Whether you are an aspiring business owner,  new business owner, or been in business 50 years, there will be a nugget or two for you to expand or start your business! 

The event will be held at the SLCC Campus in Sandy at the Karen Gail Miller Conference Center from 8AM-2PM.

We are excited to kick start our event with Salt Lake County Mayor, Jenny Wilson. She will give us an overview of what's happening with business in the County.

All the way from Washington D.C.-We welcome Jason Rae from the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) who will educate us on how to procure more contracts from national suppliers with the LGBT Business Enterprise® (LGBTBE®) designation.

The afternoon will continue with the following topics: diversity and inclusion workforce best practices, social media management, recruitment specialists, funding opportunities for small businesses, the 10K Small business program, our revamped SafeZone program and the newly formed LGBTQ+ Chamber Foundation. 

We will end the day with none other than Utah native, Bobby Edwards, CEO of Squatty Potty! Bobby will share with us his pitch that won over Lori Greiner from the hit TV show, Shark Tank.
