Supplier Diversity – Launching LGBT-Owned Business Certification
Unlock the Potential as an LGBT Business Owner & Corporate Partner!
LGBT+ owned companies are routinely sought out by businesses who want to work with the LGBT business community.
As the exclusive, third-party LGBT certification body in the UK, OutBritain will verify that eligible businesses are majority-owned by LGBT+ individuals, and grant LGBT Business Enterprise® (LGBTBE ®) accreditation.
By partnering with the United States National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) and other national and regional LGBT+ Chambers of Commerce and networking groups, OutBritain is connecting the UK’s LGBT+ businesses to the world’s largest LGBT+ business network.
OutBritain is the exclusive, independent, certification body that verifies that eligible businesses are majority-owned by LGBT individuals in the UK.
Once verified, OutBritain grants Certified LGBT Business Enterprise® (Certified LGBTBE) designation to those businesses.
In turn, Certified LGBTBE® companies gain access to OutBritain’s corporate sponsors and members.
By forming lasting business relationships, based on a shared understanding of, and dedication to, equality and inclusion, we ensure the economic advancement of LGBT+ people and businesses everywhere.

Achieving economic parity is a vital step in any equality movement.
