In honor of LGBTQ+ Pride Month, join the Women’s Center for Entrepreneurship Corporation as they share grant and loan opportunities for small business owners of the LGBTQ+ Community, as well as general funding options. The pandemic disproportionately impacted the LGBTQ+ community. Research finds higher rates of unemployment and food insecurity among those individuals compared to non-LGBTQ+ people, and 1 in 5 lives in poverty. On average, someone who identifies as LGBTQ+ experiences a 10% wage gap to that of their hetero and cis counterparts. Additionally, non-binary folks average a 30% wage gap, and trans men and women experience a 30-40% wage gap. Equity and advocacy is needed now more than ever. The Women’s Center for Entrepreneurship Corporation will share current programming for grants, micro-loans and other funding options to help LGBTQ+-owned small businesses thrive.
