The Uruguayan LGBT Chamber of Commerce defines its mission as fostering the businesses and the competitiveness of the Uruguayan companies committed to diversity, encouraging the networking and the internationalization of their products and services, while providing business tools for the economic and social development of the LGBT community in Uruguay.
Members of the Chamber may include companies and organisations (public, private or a combination of the two), from any part of Uruguay, from any of the economic axes, which are committed to diversity in their policies and their actions. For this, they shall be provided with a process of training and sensitisation. It is the opportunity to approach the LGBT market and to form part of the international chain of suppliers who support diversity, and where the most important companies at a global level are to be found, therefore facilitating business between all of those organisations who share these values.
