Established in 2012 as the Utah Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, in February of 2019 we changed our name to be more inclusive to the Utah LGBTQ+ Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber strives to bring diversity and inclusion to businesses throughout Utah. We welcome all, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, that means our allies, too! Our Chamber and our members play a crucial role in paving the way to advance the LGBTQ+ business community throughout the State of Utah.
We represent over 140 small business, corporate, and nonprofit members who share the values of promoting equality and diversity in the workplace.
The Utah LGBTQ+ Chamber serves as a connector across the state, bringing the community together through business while advocating for civil rights and small business. Additionally, together with The Utah Pride Center and Equality Utah we are advancing and investing in the next generation of leaders through the Kathy Phelps Scholarship Fund.
