The Wisconsin LGBT Chamber of Commerce announced the Milwaukee Bucks joined the nonprofit as a platinum founding member, bringing the membership to more than 400.
“We couldn’t be prouder to welcome the Milwaukee Bucks as our newest platinum member,” Jason Rae, executive director of the Wisconsin LGBT Chamber of Commerce, said in a news release. “The Milwaukee Bucks are a true hometown team, focused on engaging all members of the community. We cannot wait to work with the team to grow a pro-fairness business community in Wisconsin.”
Bucks president Peter Feigin stated, “We’re thrilled to partner with the Wisconsin LGBT Chamber as their newest platinum founding member. The Milwaukee Bucks are committed to building an inclusive fan experience that truly engages members of the LGBT community. As an organization, inclusion and diversity is a core pillar of who we are. We look forward to a strong partnership with the Wisconsin LGBT Chamber over the years to come.”
Platinum membership with the Wisconsin LGBT Chamber is one of the highest levels available. Membership includes a seat on the Chamber’s Corporate Leadership Advisory Council.
“Reaching 400 current and active members in under four years exceeded our expectations and we are so grateful to do that with the Milwaukee Bucks. We know that this will be a rewarding partnership for all,” Rae said.
