OutPro 11

As a champion for a diverse and inclusive community, the Chamber is proud to provide OutPro, an LGBTQ+ professionals group that can serve as both a resource to employers and employees, as well as an affinity group for the LGBTQ+ community.

OutPro promotes a welcoming culture in the West Michigan community and offers social and professional networking opportunities throughout the city. OutPro events are attended by professionals at all career levels, representing a diversity of corporations, small businesses, and public and non-profit organizations.

Be sure to visit the events calendar and the OutPro Facebook page for the most up-to-date details on OutPro programming and events!

We'd love to see you on Wednesday, May 12 from 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM for our event: Knowing Your LGBTQ+ Consumer
