The MidSouth LGBT Chamber of Commerce is a newly formed organization, established in 2021 and created by local Memphis LGBTQ+ business leaders and entrepreneurs.
Our mission is to provide local business professionals who are LGBTQ+ or identify as an ally space where they can work peer-to-peer and business-to-business to enrich their careers through regional programming.
Our pillars for our members are networking, education, and advocacy.
Our programs bring members monthly in-person networking events and virtual educational webinars every other month and host random “no-agenda pop-ups.” Varying our outreach styles gives us multiple ways to reach our membership.
We have established a foundation for our organization to benefit our membership. We are planning programs to get our members networked with other like-minded professionals, teach more work skills, and inform folks of advocacy initiatives in our communities.
