The Nashville LGBT Chamber has announced their winners from their 9th annual Pride in Business Awards that took place Friday at Nashville’s Music City Center. Awards were presented to LGBT owned and allied businesses, as well as non-profits, corporate partners, and advocates in the area that are committed to diversity and inclusion in the workplace and society. Over 100 people and organizations were nominated across the seven categories.

“The Pride in Business Awards highlight the great work businesses and professionals are doing to advance equality in the workplace and society in Tennessee,” said Terry Vo, Board President of the Nashville LGBT Chamber of Commerce. “Each of our finalists and recipients are committed to keeping our state Open and Equal for all. As Nashville and Tennessee continue to grow, inclusion and diversity are good for businesses and our state.”

Brian Rosman, Vice President of the Nashville LGBT Chamber of Commerce added, “An estimated 1.4 million LGBTQ+ owned businesses add nearly 2 trillion dollars and over 33,000 jobs to the United States economy. Businesses with strong diversity and inclusion practices attract better talent and more potential customers. States that embrace these same principles would see a rise in tax revenues, new jobs, and consumer confidence.”
