Announcing the 2021 Pride in Business Awards - Friday, June 4th

Business Awards Events Chamber News Release

We are back! After having to cancel the awards in 2020 due to COVID-19, we are ready to celebrate at the 2021 awards.

They may look a little different but the reason for them is the same, to celebrate and highlight the work of our incredible members and community. The awards program is also the major fundraising event for the Chamber and we need support after the year we have just gone through. The Chamber paused all membership dues during COVID, asking members to pay if they can but not dropping anyone if they could not. We need your support now more than ever to continue our mission.


The Nashville LGBT Chamber invites you to its annual business awards on Friday, June 4, 11 am - 1 pm!


What a way to kickoff PRIDE month!


The Nashville LGBT Chamber is excited to announce the Pride in Business Awards, that support the Nashville LGBT Chamber Foundation and celebrate the business of Pride!


The event includes a Who’s Who of Corporate leaders, small business owners, civic leaders, and professionals. Our virtual guests won't miss any of the action as they network with members of the Nashville LGBT Chamber and the community and cheer on the awards finalist in their favorite categories.


This event has become known for its powerful audience, emotional acceptance speeches, and optimism among those committed to diversity, inclusion, and equity in the workplace and society. 2021 won't be any different! We missed 2020 so we have a lot of celebration and recognition to do, join us! 



We will be holding the awards virtually on the Airmeet events platform. There
will be an hour of networking, and sponsors and community partners will have virtual booths that you can visit and talk about their work. This will keep the amazing networking and connection past in-person awards were known for.
The awards ceremony will run from 12-1 and will be a hybrid event with presenters and nominees safely distanced in a location or online. Enjoy your lunch while watching or join a “viewing party.” There may be opportunities at member locations around the city to watch safely in person.

The Pride in Business Awards benefits the The Nashville LGBT Chamber Foundation, which educates, inspires, and empowers our individual, small business, corporate, and nonprofit members, and the community-at-large; who share the values of promoting equality and diversity in business and society.


For this year’s Pride in Business Awards, we will be offering several sponsorship opportunities. Not only will you be sponsoring the event itself, but each award category will have a distinct sponsor. Move fast if you are interested! There are only 7 sponsor opportunities and some of these are already sold.
