Are you looking for resources to help your small business recover from the economic impacts of the Coronavirus pandemic? Recovery doesn't look the same for everyone and businesses owned by marginalized community members can often be left behind, highlighting inequities that already existed before the economic downturn. The Utah LGBTQ+ Chamber of Commerce is partnering with the Salt Lake County Office of Regional Development to help businesses connect with resources that can aid in recovery.

Wednesday, April 13, 2022 1.00p-3.00p Mountain– We will be joining with LGBTQ+ Chambers across the nation and ERG leaders of companies who have earned scores of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Corporate Equality Index. Whether it is your first time participating in HRC CEI, you are hitting a wall and stuck at a score of 80, or just overwhelmed by the process, join fellow ERG leaders to share tips and walk through the application process. In this session, ERG leaders will share insights gained, challenges experienced, and top tips for reaching 100. The CEI survey helps gauge trends and best practices among businesses.
