The European Gay and Lesbian Manager Association (egma) is an umbrella organisation of national LGBT* affiliated associations which represent almost 2500 LGBT managers, professionals and entrepreneurs. egma acts as a platform accessible to all member organisations, providing the LGBT business community with easy access to local agendas and events as a base for European networking. We are in close contact with other European organisations such as ILGA**. Other perspectives are to offer business contacts throughout Europe access, using a business diary to research Europe-wide contacts.
We are the European link to worldwide networking and are the voice of Europe in the IGLCC***.
egma is committed to forming a broad-based coalition, representing the various interests of LGBT-owned business professionals, corporations and allies.
egma aims to take an active role in European politics, focusing on topics that concern the LGBT business community. Together with its member associations, egma organises events and projects relating to discrimination at the workplace and diversity management.
