SBA hosts webinar panel on increasing opportunities for LGBTQI+


In celebration of Pride Month, the U.S. Small Business Administration will host a live webinar panel with Larry Webb, district director SBA’s Washington Metropolitan Area District Office; Justin Nelson, co-founder and president of National LGBT Chamber of Commerce; and small business owner Rachel Kalenberg of Pizza Carrello in Gillette, Wyoming.

The webinar will take place on Thursday, June 30 from 1 to 2 p.m.

The discussion will focus on financial wellness and the importance of equity and opportunity to help uplift and support LGBTQI+-owned small businesses across the country. The panel will also discuss SBA initiatives and resources that support small business, LGBTQI+ entrepreneurs seeking to launch, and help for existing LGBTQI+-owned small businesses as they pivot and grow in a post-COVID world, a priority of the Biden-Harris Administration and SBA Administrator Isabella Casillas Guzman.
