WASHINGTON, Oct. 25, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Supplier diversity is the cornerstone to a new era of diversity, equity, and inclusion in today’s evolving business ecosystem. EverGlade Consulting is excited to announce that it has been approved as a Certified LGBT Business Enterprise® with the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) Supplier Diversity Initiative.
Visibility and representation have been shown to be marked characteristics that foster more inclusivity and advance equitable agendas within businesses, organizations, and even governmental entities. As part of this effort, EverGlade Consulting became part of this certification program in the hopes to promote more transparency and visibility within the professional services industry.
“EverGlade Consulting is excited to add this NGLCC certification to its credentials and looks forward to being a proud example of economic opportunity and advancement for other LGBT+ owned businesses,” explained Chairman and President Jerry Jia-Sobota.
“When I started my career in government contracting two decades ago, being out was much more difficult,” explained Eric Jia-Sobota, National Leader of EverGlade’s Consulting Practice. “It was important then and even more important now to be visible as business leader and owner, especially in a field that is not especially known for LGBT businesses,” he concluded.
