ON ITS AXIS Awarded LGBTBE® Certification by the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce

Washington, DC — ON ITS AXIS is proud to announce their recent certification as an LGBT Business Enterprise (LGBTBE®) through the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) Supplier Diversity Initiative. The NGLCC is the business voice of the LGBT community and serves as the nation’s exclusive certifying body for LGBT-owned and operated businesses.

“We are so pleased to welcome ON ITS AXIS to the ever-expanding network of NGLCC-certified LGBT Business Enterprises and the hundreds of corporations and government agencies eager to put them to work,” said NGLCC Co-Founder and President Justin Nelson and Co-Founder and CEO Chance Mitchell. “According to NGLCC’s groundbreaking America’s LGBT Economy Report, America’s estimated 1.4 million LGBT business owners, many of them NGLCC certified, add over $1.7 trillion to the GDP and create tens of thousands of new jobs. We are proud to count ON ITS AXIS among those who prove every day that LGBT businesses are the future of the American economy.”

ON ITS AXIS is now eligible to participate in the NGLCC’s corporate partners’ supplier diversity programs, can take advantage of the vast educational opportunities promoted by the NGLCC, and can work to foster business-to-business relationships with other LGBTBEs worldwide throughout the year and especially at the NGLCC International Business and Leadership Conference.

“We are excited to be recognized as a diversity supplier through the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce. As a firm focused on innovation, we believe diverse voices are necessary for innovation to take shape and that elevating the voices of diverse people supports growth and adds value,” said Shelley Iocona, ON ITS AXIS Founder and Principal. “We look forward to attending the 2023 NGLCC International Leadership and Business Conference in Denver this August to collaborate with other diverse suppliers and meet with corporate partners.
