What we're about

Thank you for being a part of this meet-up. As you may know GALA had a networking group that met for many years. Every so often and at least once a year, the Board of GALA evaluates all of our programs and searches for ways to better reach our goals. We are committed to workplace equality and supporting the businesses in North Texas that are LGBT+ owned and businesses owned by allies who share our goals.

We would like to find new and creative ways of reaching this goal. In the past we have partnered with Texas Competes; the GLBT North Chamber and are members of other Chambers of Commerce including Frisco and Plano.

While we explore options we would like to ask two things of you:

1) Please join the main GALA NTX Meet-up group so you won’t miss any of our events (and in case we eventually decide to combine the two..)


2) Give some thought as to how GALA can achieve our goal of “Creating fairer and more inclusive workplaces” and share those thoughts we the Board. We want you to be a part of this process. Email us at info@galantx.org

Thank you.
