In "Jonathan Lovitz -- A Force To Be Reckoned With," Passport Magazine praises the Vice President of External Affairs for the partner organization National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) for his commitment to LGBT economic empowerment:
"There are those who speak of great things. There are those who do great things. And there are a blessed few like Jonathan Lovitz...who manage both."
The article also explains the great value of NGLCC's certification program:
"At the core of the NGLCC is its diversity certification program, the only third-party certifying body for LGBT-owned businesses in the country. With the momentum of federally recognized same-sex marriage since 2015, and more millennials’ gender fluidity coming into the spotlight, some might wonder if we’ve past the need for such identification. Not when money talks. Corporate and government contracts are worth millions and NGLCC certified businesses are able to apply for such contracts through the organization’s Corporate Supplier Diversity Partners. The NGLCC recently certified its 900th business, continuing to establish a powerhouse of goods and services that strengthens the LGBT community and also encourages competitive bidding."
