Celebrating Pride Month: SBA Hosts Live Webinar Panel on Increasing Opportunities for LGBTQI+ Small Business Owners
SBA’s Elevating Small Business Series Webinar: Celebrating LGBTQI+ Pride Month.
In celebration of Pride, the U.S. Small Business Administration will host a live webinar panel with Larry Webb, District Director, SBA’s Washington Metropolitan Area District Office; Justin Nelson, Co-founder and President, National LGBT Chamber of Commerce; and small business owner Rachel Kalenberg of Pizza Carrello in Gillette, Wyoming.
The discussion will focus on financial wellness and the importance of equity and opportunity to help uplift and support LGBTQI+-owned small businesses across the country. The panel will also discuss SBA initiatives and resources that support small business, LGBTQI+ entrepreneurs seeking to launch, and help for existing LGBTQI+-owned small businesses as they pivot and grow in a post-COVID world, a priority of the Biden-Harris Administration and SBA Administrator Isabella Casillas Guzman.
