‘Tis the season for parties and the Atlanta Gay & Lesbian Chamber Commerce offers their rendition on the holiday classic Wednesday with a two-hour event in Midtown.
Of course, there’s plenty of networking to be had, door prizes and cocktails during the event at Einstein’s. It is a holiday party, after all. Just don’t bother wearing your favorite puff print reindeer sweater.
Don’t let the holidays fool you, though. The gay chamber has been busy this quarter, offering a high-energy session on networking tips, heading to Underground Atlanta for its monthly 4th Friday Networking and celebrating companies in Atlanta that nab perfect grades on an equality scorecard.
On Nov. 11, chamber members feted companies with a presence in Atlanta that scored a perfect 100 on the Corporate Equality Index from the Human Rights Campaign (middle photo). Some 11 of the 21 companies and law firms headquartered in Georgia and included in the report notched a perfect score — Coca-Cola, Coca-Cola Enterprises, Delta Air Lines, Newell Rubbermaid, SunTrust Banks, United Parcel Service, Alston & Bird, Cox Enterprises, ING North America Insurance, Sutherland Asbll & Brennan and Troutman Sanders.
On Oct. 23, the chamber went to Underground Atlanta for its 4th Friday Networking event (bottom photo). The evening offered a tour of Haunted Atlanta from Atlanta Trolley Tour Line, which is owned by AGLCC’s Business Man of the Year JR St. Jean.
On Oct. 11, networking expert Wendy Kinney (top photo) revealed her tips during “Networking to Pump Up Your Wallet,” a special gathering of AGLCC’s Business Builder Lunches.
