In July of 2015 the GGBA launched the Power Lunch Series with the intent to showcase extraordinary LGBT entrepreneurs, high-performing LGBT businesses and key stakeholders who are literally transforming the world. That sold-out inaugural event was a resounding success as was Power Lunch II.
 
We now bring you Power Lunch III: Origin!
 
We invite you to join the GGBA on Tuesday, February 28, 2017 as a corporate sponsor as we celebrate several remarkable achievements in LGBT entrepreneurship and showcase our growing influence in creating historic achievements in LGBT business inclusion and philanthropy.
 

About Our Special Guests
 
Dr. Vivienne Ming, Founder & Executive, Socos

She co-founded Socos, where machine learning and cognitive neuroscience combine to maximize students' life outcomes.

Dr. Ming also speaks frequently on issues of LGBT inclusion and gender in technology. Vivienne lives in Berkeley, CA, with her wife (and co-founder) and their two children.

Roger Doughty, President, Horizons Foundation
 
Horizons Foundation’s roots — as with so many Bay Area LGBT community organizations — lie deep in the phenomenal growth and development that marked the 1970s and early 1980s. At the time, the idea behind Horizons was completely new: a community-based foundation to support the whole spectrum of LGBT organizations — a foundation that was of, by, and for LGBT people. Initially founded as the philanthropic arm of the Golden Gate Business Association in 1980 the organization has grown exponentially and has surpassed the milestone of granting over $30 Million to LGBT community-based causes and organizations.
 
Roger Doughty has been a community leader in the LGBT movement for more than 25 years, and he has led Horizons Foundation since 2002. Prior to joining the foundation, he served as the Executive Director of Horizons Community Services in Chicago, the Midwest’s largest LGBT social service and advocacy organization.
 
Greg Sarris, Chairperson, Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria
 
The GGBA is proud to be the first LGBT Chamber of Commerce in the world to recognize, and honor, the successes of an LGBT/American Indian entrepreneur! Greg Sarris received his Ph.D. in Modern Thought and Literature from Stanford University, where he was awarded the Walter Gore Award for excellence in teaching. Formerly a full professor of English at UCLA, and then the Fletcher Jones Professor of Creative Writing and
Literature at Loyola Marymount University, Greg is currently serving his twelfth consecutive term as Chairman of his tribe, the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria, formerly known as the Federated Coast Miwok. Greg co-authored a bill on behalf of the tribe, H.R. 5528 and and on October 1, 2010, Greg successfully regained a reservation for his people after the Tribe had been homeless for over 50 years. In July 2013, he raised money to build a resort and casino for his tribe, and today, that business provides over 2,700 quality, sustainable jobs for
the residents of the Bay Area.
