Announcing the 2022 Pride in Business Awards!
The Nashville LGBT Chamber invites you to its signature event the Pride In Business Awards on Friday, June 3, 11 am - 1 pm at the Music City Center!
We will kick off Pride Month with the Pride in Business Awards, which support the Nashville LGBT Chamber Foundation, and celebrate the business of Pride!
The event includes a Who’s Who of corporate leaders, small business owners, civic leaders, and professionals. Our guests will network with members of the Nashville LGBT Chamber and the community and cheer on the awards finalists in new award categories.
After a year off during the height of COVID and a smaller virtual-focused event last year, we are coming back strong with our biggest program ever! We expect 1,000 attendees at our community partner the Music City Center to celebrate.
This event has become known for its powerful audience, emotional acceptance speeches, and optimism among those committed to diversity, inclusion, and equity in the workplace and society. 2022 won't be any different- we are ready to see everyone in person again!
We need your help! We have to give awards to somebody and you get to tell us who is deserving.
The award categories are evolving as the Chamber and our work evolves. This year we are changing some of the categories to better align with our work and our members. Check out the new categories below that will better reflect the incredible work of our members and the community.
We are now collecting nominations for the awards. Please submit a company, small business, friend, co-worker, boss, spouse, peer, mentor, mentee, or yourself for one of the following awards:
- Corporate Partner of the Year

- Nonprofit Organization of the Year
