Annual corporate partners are foundational to sustaining and advancing the work of GSBA as we pursue diversity, equity and inclusion in communities and the workplace.

Annual partners invest broadly across business and scholarship education programming, furthering the growth of each and impacting greater numbers of constituents.

“Comcast’s partnership with GSBA rises above a partnership between a chamber or with our LGBTQ community alone. It’s a partnership of shared values that directs what we do now. And it’s a partnership with a shared vision that works towards a more equitable world for generations to come. Together with our partners at GSBA, we don’t feel helpless to address the inequities we see and face each day. No one has to do it alone. We feel empowered and moved to action thanks to our friends at GSBA. It’s a partnership base on mutual respect, trust, engagement and listening. #WeHeartGSBA.”
