Maryland Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Represents Minority Interests
on the Port Covington Diversity Advisory Group
 

Baltimore, MD—August 6, 2018—The Maryland Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (MDHCC), the leading chamber of commerce representing and connecting over 60,000 Hispanic-owned businesses in the region, continues its ongoing partnership with the Port Covington Development Team to ensure that the Port Covington Development project increases economic opportunity for minority and women-owned businesses.

Corina Morga, the MDHCC’s Greater Baltimore Regional Chapter (GBRC) President, joins representatives from other local chambers and minority associations invited by the Baltimore City Mayor’s Office of Small, Minority and Women Business Development and the Port Covington Development Team to serve on the Port Covington Diversity Advisory Group.

“As a Latina/Native American business owner myself, I appreciate the Port Covington team’s commitment making inclusion in their procurement processes a priority from the initial stages of the project,” Morga stated. “I am honored to represent the MDHCC in these vital meetings to make the development project accessible not only to our members, but to the minority- and women-owned business community at large.”

The Diversity Advisory Group, which includes stakeholders from across business, government and nonprofit sectors, will serve to monitor the status of the achievement of the MBE/WBE goals for the project, identify best practices, build M/WBE capacity and recruit new M/WBE firms to Maryland and Baltimore.

“The Port Covington Development Team believes that the meaningful involvement of diverse suppliers in all aspects of the project is integral to its success,” said Alicia Wilson, Senior Vice President of Impact Investments for the Port Covington Development Team. “We are proud to have the Maryland Hispanic Chamber of Commerce as a part of this group of leaders that will advise us as the project progresses.”
