    Wake Up With Quorum (sponsored by Associated Bank) is usually held on the second Friday morning of every month at 8:00am, and is hosted by a Quorum member business. Wake Up With Quorum is a great alternative networking opportunity for members who are unable to attend events in the evening or prefer a smaller, more intimate environment. These networking events are a casual fun way to increase your networks, build your business and meet other community business leaders.

    Quorum is proud to partner with Wells Fargo and the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) to bring you our inaugural Transgender and Gender Expansive (TGX) Biz Pitch event!

    The mission of the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) Transgender & Gender Expansive (TGX) Initiative is to convene a group of diverse leaders that will improve and advise upon efforts to procure goods and services from transgender, gender non-conforming, non-binary, and gender expansive business owners, with the ultimate goal of economic empowerment for some of the most vulnerable — yet most innovative– members of the LGBT community.

    This event is a chance for TGX business owners to informally present your business to a panel of experts and other entrepreneurs!

    If you have a 5 minute (or less) presentation about your business, you are already a step ahead! (If not, we will also be having a Building Your Elevator pitch/Understanding Supplier Diversity event (via Zoom) November 29th!)  Simply bring your new elevator pitch and business messaging to the Biz Pitch event!

    These programs are a tremendous opportunity for TGX-owned businesses to form new relationships, learn what other TGX business owners are working on, and support one another in your entrepreneurial journeys. 
     
    The program will take place on December 14th from 2:00 - 4:30 p.m.  Please submit your short application be an event presenter no later than Friday, December 9th.

    CLICK HERE to be a presenter at the event!

    Additionally, any TGX business owner is invited to apply to have their affiliate chamber dues waived in the first year of membership in order to become an NGLCC Certified LGBT Business Enterprise® (LGBTBE) supplier.  Thanks to the generous support of Wells Fargo, the NGLCC is accepting applications on a rolling basis through December 2022 for the chamber membership dues waiver. If you are a TGX business owner who need financial assistance in becoming a Quorum member and intends to become LGBTBE certified, please use the TGX Certification Scholarship link to apply: https://nglcc.formstack.com/forms/2022_tgx_certification_scholarship

    Join us to support TGX business owners!

Would you like to meet other people involved in similar groups in the Twin Cities, learn about current best practices, and network with other professionals? You’re invited to join your peers from Twin Cities LGBTQ+ and Allied Employee Resource Groups for a night of networking and best practices sharing!


    Quorum is thrilled to be partnering with Wells Fargo to host our next Workplace Alliance Council event on Wednesday, November 30th at 5:30pm at Wells Fargo located at 550 South 4th Street in Minneapolis.


    Trans*Forming” Business: Identifying Best in Class Strategies to Support Trans*/Gender Expansive Employees

    Employee resource and affinity groups are often created to provide community and a sense of belonging in workplaces. LGBTQ+ and Ally-focused groups have had tremendous impact on workplace guidelines, policy, and “cultural norms”. We also know that these groups have helped some companies become more relevant and inclusive in the marketplace.

    We know that building an inclusive workplace goes far beyond a singular policy or recommendation, especially for Trans*/Gender Expansive employees. At this event, we will hear from Trans*/Gender Expansive employees about their workplace journeys and how they have navigated this sometimes tenuous terrain. Additionally, we will:

         *Explore how one can influence corporate culture by engaging allies, and discuss ways to keep this group actively involved and passionate about supporting Trans*/Gender Expansive communities in the workplace

         *Discuss what impact will this work make on acquiring and retaining talent?

    AGENDA:

    5:30 - 5:45 Informal Networking with drinks/light appetizers

    5:45 - 7:15 Wells Fargo Welcome and Event Program

    7:15 - 7:30 Closing Remarks and Next Steps

    7:30- 8:30 Drinks and continued networking at TBD

      We look forward to your attendance at this event. These conversations help shape our companies today and we’d love to have everyone’s attendance and input. Please feel free to share this exciting event with other network friends and colleagues! 

      Please do not hesitate to reach out with questions you want to make sure we include! rebecca@twincitiesquorum.com See you on November 30th!
