PHILADELPHIA, April 25, 2023 (Newswire.com)
Creative Repute®, LLC Graphic Design and Development Agency is officially certified as an LGBT Business by the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) Supplier Diversity Initiative.
Formed in 2017, Creative Repute is a graphic design, website development, mobile app development, and marketing agency that boasts an impact-driven vision informing its work and hiring practices. As a Black-queer person, the founder, Nile Livingston, is intimately aware of the disproportionate representation of multiple marginalized people in their industry: As of 2022, “70.2% of all U.S. graphic designers are white, and only 13% identify as LGBT+“. This glaring lack of diverse perspectives is one central issue Creative Repute actively challenges. By hiring an expansive range of creatives and strategists, the company occupies a unique lane, which fosters culturally competent work in a business world growing increasingly dependent upon visuals and seeking to keep pace with a necessarily progressive culture.
The agency has spearheaded captivating and relevant visuals and invigorating platforms for companies whose heft ranges from using 100% of its funds for mission-aligned change, like the Nathan Cummings Foundation, to highlighting scholarship from marginalized persons with Colored Convos Media.
With this official certification, the NGLCC, its organizational allies, and corporate partners now nationally recognize Creative Repute as a diverse supplier. The agency joins the growing ranks of over 790 certified LGBTBEs. Creative Repute is now eligible to participate in the NGLCC’s corporate partners’ supplier diversity programs, can take advantage of the vast educational opportunities promoted by the NGLCC, and can work to foster business-to-business relationships with other LGBTBEs.
The National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) is the only national not-for-profit advocacy organization dedicated to expanding the economic opportunities and advancements of the LGBT business community. With more than 140 corporate partners, and 59 local, state, and international affiliate chambers, NGLCC is the largest LGBT business development and economic advocacy organization in the world. The NGLCC Supplier Diversity Initiative connects LGBT businesses with the tens of millions of corporate dollars being spent in the LGBT community each year. Today, the NGLCC has nearly 140 corporate partners who recognize the LGBTBE designation when making procurement decisions and who all share a commitment to ensuring diversity in their supply chains.
