    When looking to buy a product or hire a service provider, wouldn’t it be great to know that the business you are supporting is supportive of the LGBTQ community? At the June meeting of PFLAG Columbia-Howard County, the President of the Maryland LGBT Chamber of Commerce, Tom Koerber, will present his organization and discuss how it supports Maryland’s LGBTQ community. Freshly formed in 2017 the chamber has hit the ground running to build a strong network of LGBTQ+ owned and affirming businesses across the state.

  • Testimonials

    We are deeply proud of the excellence of our speakers and the effectiveness of their training.

    Meaningful

    “Thank you is not sufficient in expressing my gratitude. The presentation was amazing both in the content it provided and the engaging manner in which it was delivered. I have had many staff members say it was the most meaningful professional development they have had.”​

    Impressed

    “The presentation was great, and I was particularly impressed with the amount of information shared that can be immediately applied in our daily lives.”

    Wow

    “I had not thought the presentation was going to apply to me and my family at all, but I came away thinking, ‘Wow, this applies to everyone, so I will have to go home and have a conversation with my kids.'”​

    Guidance

    “The offer to continue to help as we figure this out will help us set up policy in the future. We appreciated all the guidance provided.”​

    Great

    “This was a GREAT presentation. The personal experiences of the presenters and their personal attachments/involvements to the material they delivered was not lost on me as an attendee. I believe this should be a mandatory presentation. Many of the misconceptions and stereotypes could be put to rest and the reality of what some youth are exposed to unintentionally by society’s insensitivities …GREAT presentation!!!”​

    Bravery

    "I just wanted you to know that last night’s meeting was excellent. All of the kids on the panel and on the sidelines should be commended for their bravery at sharing thoughts about their very personal lives.”
    Joan Hynson

    Powerful

    “Thank you PFLAG for having such powerful presenters. Catherine Hyde was the opening speaker for a company Diversity & Inclusion event that focused on coming out in the work place. Catherine’s personal story of her journey in accepting and then supporting her transgender daughter was incredibly moving and heartfelt. Our employees were truly captivated as her history unfolded, and I know that there was much learning going on. This was there perfect launch for our panel discussion that followed. Keep up the great work!”
