National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce Welcomes Time Warner Cable as New National Corporate Partner

WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC), the business
voice of the LGBT community, proudly announces Time Warner Cable Inc.
(TWC) as the latest addition to the NGLCC National Corporate Partner
family. TWC is among the largest providers of video, high-speed data and
voice services in the United States.

Through its participation on the NGLCC Procurement Council and Corporate
Advisory Council, TWC can elevate its supplier diversity programs among
peers and colleagues. NGLCC’s councils are the premier forums to
exchange ideas regarding supplier diversity best practices; help create
standards for how to do business with certified LGBT suppliers; and
discuss emerging trends in diversity and inclusion. NGLCC corporate
partners demonstrate their commitment to inclusion by completing the
circle of diversity, which includes pro-LGBT workplace policies,
authentic LGBT marketing, and purchasing from certified LGBT Business
Enterprises (LGBTBEs).

“Time Warner Cable is excited to partner with NGLCC and we look forward
to new opportunities as we expand our supplier diversity program with
LGBT-owned businesses,” said David Wiehagen, TWC’s VP and Chief
Procurement Officer. “As a long-time supporter of diversity and
inclusion, we believe that working with diverse suppliers is reflective
of our employee and customer population and truly benefits the business.”

TWC now joins NGLCC’s ever-growing roster of Fortune 500 corporations
and business organizations seeking to expand economic opportunities with
LGBT businesses. NGLCC certified LGBT suppliers will help nearly all
major corporations and organizations achieve the brass ring they aspire
to: a billion dollar spend on minority owned businesses. Adding LGBT
enterprises to a supply chain increases the number of high quality
competitive bids that allow companies to continue raising their minority
spend year over year as a part of their social responsibility

“Time Warner Cable is a leader within the telecommunications industry
that stands at the forefront of diversity and inclusion initiatives,”
said Justin Nelson, NGLCC Co-Founder and President. “We are thrilled to
welcome Time Warner Cable as a corporate partner as we know their
commitment to supply chain diversity is unwavering.”

TWC has an existing relationship with the Wisconsin LGBT Chamber of
Commerce and recently sponsored its “LGBT Gives Back” launch celebration
event in Milwaukee. TWC has received numerous awards for diversity and
inclusion and was named a 2016 Best Place to Work for LGBT employees by
the Human Rights Campaign Foundation with a perfect 100 percent score
for the fourth year in a row.
