WetKeys Washable Keyboards announces its certification as an LGBT Business Enterprise. Authorized by the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce, this recognition establishes WetKeys as a diversity supplier that supports inclusivity in business and the communities they serve.
“It has been a core tenet of WetKeys' culture to create a workplace where our employees feel empowered to be themselves,” said Paul Lawrence, CEO, WetKeys. “Becoming certified as an LGBTBE was important, so we could establish ourselves as a progressive business within our industry that embodies openness, integrity and inclusion for all. We are grateful to see the support of many other organizations embracing this same sentiment of authenticity and inclusion in business.”
Through this certification, WetKeys is promoting more visibility for diverse suppliers across the Technology, IT, and Industrial Supplies sector.

By increasing diversity in their supply chain, they are paving the way for a more equitable economic future.
