Interview with Chance Mitchell • NGLCC • National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce. Chance Mitchell – Co Founder & CEO. This interview was conducted during the NGLCC Reception in Buenos Aires at the LEGADO Mitico Hotel.
The NGLCC is committed to forming a broad-based coalition, representative of the various interests of LGBT owned and friendly businesses, professionals, and students of business for the purpose of promoting economic growth and the prosperity of its members.
NGLCC co-founders Justin G. Nelson and Chance Mitchell (picture above during the last GNetwork event in Buenos Aires) are incredibly committed to LGBT causes, especially within the U.S. business community.
Chance Mitchell has dedicated his efforts to fighting for equality for the LGBT community. Mitchell, along with co-founder Justin Nelson, launched the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) in November 2002. “It is a concept that is long overdue. Our community is at the forefront of economic growth and innovation and the time has come for us to leverage the economics of equality. Having a national group advocating for LGBT businesses, employees and benefits will give our community a united voice with the financial strength to support it,” noted Mr. Mitchell at a recent gathering of community leaders in Washington, DC.
For his work in doing so, he, along with Mr. Nelson, was named in December 2002 to the “Top 100 Greatest Gay Success Stories of 2002” by OUT Magazine.
