Connect Across Texas with the LGBTQ & Allied Business Community!
February 25, 2021 | 4:00 - 5:30 p.m.
Join the Texas LGBTQ Chambers of Commerce as we connect at Pride Across Texas. This quarterly networking event will connect LGBTQ & Allied Business Owners through the Austin LGBT Chamber, Greater Houston LGBT Chamber, North Texas LGBT Chamber and San Antonio LGBT Chamber.
Pride Across Texas is an LGBTQ+ virtual networking event as big as Texas itself! Combined, Texas LGBTQ Chambers of Commerce have more than 1,000 members. Here is a chance to reach beyond your city, county, and region to create new business networks!
Our advocacy specialist, Angela Hale, will give a brief update of the 87th Legislative Session to inform attendees of bills to watch and ways individuals and small businesses can advocate for or against specific legislation. Angela Hale is the Managing Partner of Red Media Group, a strategic communications and public affairs company. Angela led communications and lobby strategy during the 2017 bathroom bill legislative session for the Keep Texas Open for Business coalition and defeated the legislation twice. She often speaks and organizes business to advocate for diversity and inclusion as a 21st century business imperative. She is a consultant for Texas Competes, Equality Texas, the Texas LGBTQ Chambers of Commerce and a variety of cities, chambers of commerce, state-wide associations and companies who face regulatory and legislative issues at the Texas Capitol. Hale is a former Emmy award winning DFW CBS 11 Political Reporter who also served on the executive management team. Angela was one of the highest-ranking women to work for Speaker of the House Joe Straus and Governor Greg Abbott during his first two terms as attorney general.
Join us as we connect the LGBTQ & Allied Business Community virtually across the State of Texas to network and grow business!
The event will include networking to give participants an opportunity to create connections across cities and through the network of Texas LGBTQ Chambers of Commerce.
Four or five people will virtually meet in a breakout room and will rotate every 10 minutes. Easy! So get that elevator speech ready! Create your "Virtual Zoom" business card through one of the many digital business card apps on the market (hint: google digital business card) or create your "paper version" and hold it up so others can snap a picture and quickly capture your contact info.
We look forward to seeing you!
