We Need to Celebrate and We Need Your Help!

Business Awards Events Chamber News Release

We need your help in a number of ways, can you take a few minutes and support the LGBT Chamber and our work?  COVID stopped us from celebrating Pride in Business last year but we are back this year, we have two years of YOUR work to highlight and honor and we can’t do it without YOU.


Nominations for the awards close TONIGHT at Midnight! Nominate people and businesses today. We can't have awards if we don't have nominees!


We also need supporters and sponsors! We are doing more than ever before and achieving great things, but we need financial support to keep it going. We have been impacted by COVID and our decision to not hold the awards last year and also pause small business membership during these tough times. The Pride Business Awards are our biggest fundraiser while also being the event where we highlight our members and the community’s work. 


We are pleased to announce that our new Titanium Level member Dell Technologies has come on as the PRESENTING sponsor of the Pride in Business Awards this year! We can’t thank them enough for all their support. We still have several other sponsorship levels available, all of which come with the presentation of an award. Virtual table sponsors are also available, getting a group of 10 in on the action. We also have individual ticket options, and if you are a member you get that at a lower rate, so join today! 


The event is going to a hybrid virtual/in-person event and we are looking at bringing you a great program filled with entertainment and surprises. Find out all the details below and get involved! 



The Pride in Business Awards presented by Dell Technologies are 44 days away! We need your support and nominations to make sure this event is a success!


The Nashville LGBT Chamber will present its annual business awards at a high-profile virtual event on Friday, June 4, 2021, from 11 am - 1 pm.


Support the Nashville LGBT Chamber Foundation at our annual Pride in Business Awards, which includes a Who’s Who of Corporate leaders, small business owners, civic leaders, and professionals. While reimagined for a virtual world, this high-energy event will still bring a powerful audience, emotional acceptance speeches, and optimism among those committed to diversity and inclusion in the workplace.


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.



We have to give awards to somebody and you get to tell us who is deserving.


We are now collecting nominations for the awards. Please use this form to nominate a company, small business, friend, co-worker, boss, spouse, peer, mentor, mentee, or yourself for an award from the LGBT Chamber.


Nominations close TODAY, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 21st at MIDNIGHT.


Finalists will be announced in a virtual live broadcast in May. Please send as many deserving nominees as you want in the following categories:

  • Corporate Diversity
  • Small Business Diversity
  • Business Leader of the Year
