2019-09-18

On Sept. 18, Chicago Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot introduced a resolution acknowledging LGBT-owned business enterprises ( LGBTBEs ) and their contributions to Chicago's economy and residents.

The resolution aims to identify business development opportunities for LGBTBEs as well as promote opportunities within the city's procurement process.

The resolution identifies a series of actions that the Department of Procurement Services ( DPS ) will undertake to encourage participation of LGBTBEs in city procurement opportunities. These include developing methods to conduct or facilitate technical assistance or training programs to increase the potential for successful bidding on City projects, as well as maintaining a clearinghouse of information on programs and services that are available.

In addition, DPS will maintain relationships with LGBT-focused assistance agencies, partnering with them to further the goal of increasing LGBT participation in City procurement. DPS will continue to keep these agencies informed about conferences, events, or other services that are available to LGBTBEs.

DPS will be working closely with the LGBT Chamber of Commerce of Illinois, which is recognized as an assistance agency.
