November 3, 2007-Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual, and Transgendered Economic Development Summit

Hosted by the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development, the Office of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered (LGBT) Affairs, the Washington, DC Economic Partnership, the Potomac Executive Network, and the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, the summit will provide LGBT demographics, certifications that benefit LGBT business owners, a great networking event and many more topics to help business owners succeed in the District.

The Office of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Affairs (LGBT) is a permanent, cabinet-level office within the Executive Office of the Mayor established by statute in 2006 to address the important concerns of the District’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender residents. From 2004 to 2006, the office operated under Mayor’s Order 2004-148. Prior to 2004, a special assistant to the Mayor for LGBT issues provided constituent services and community outreach. Today, the Office of LGBT Affairs places DC among a select group of cities including Boston, New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles with offices or senior officials dedicated to the LGBT community.

For more information contact Christopher Dyer, Director for LGBT Affairs, Office of the Mayor at 202-442-8150. To register for this event, please GO HERE.
