Diversely-Owned Businesses:

Seattle, Washington


ALA's Office for Diversity, Literacy and Outreach Services has compiled a selection of minority, women, and LGBTQ-owned businesses that attendees may wish to explore while in Seattle for the 2019 ALA Midwinter Meeting & Exhibits. We have focused primarily on places in close geographic proximity to the Washington State Convention Center so this is not an exhaustive list of the city's diversely-owned businesses. You can click on each of the blue pins to learn more about each business including directions.

Several other resources that may be of interest include the Seattle Chamber of Commerce, The Foodways Project, and Ethnic Seattle.

If there is a business or organization you think we should add to our map, please e-mail your suggestion to diversity@ala.org. The information gathered below was compiled from Intentionalist.
