Business Equality Awards Luncheon

Wednesday, June 12 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm • Organized By Mid-America Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce.
Grand Room, 4740 Grand Ave, Kansas City, MO 64112


The MId-America Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce that Mikah Meyer will deliver keynote remarks at the luncheon.  Mikah helped launch the Outdoors Industry Campaign for REI, the international outdoor clothing & equipment retailer.  He will speak on how the outdoor industry market was missing out on LGBTQ dollars by not including the LGBTQ community and REI took notice.  They have since launched a whole line of clothing and items related to LGBTQ/Outdoors.  His experience of traveling to all 418 National Parks Service sites (completion in April 2019) is part of a larger effort to create safe, LGBTQ spaces in the outdoors for LGBTQ people.  His desire is to help the industry become more comfortable showing LGBTQ people in their marketing.

At the Luncheon, they will also recognize outstanding chamber members in six different categories.  Please look for awards criteria and nominating forms next week in your email box!
Come celebrate MAGLCC during PRIDE month!
