The Maryland Corporate Council’s Annual Business Breakfast will be held on Wednesday, June 13 from 8-10 a.m. at the Hotel Monaco in Baltimore.

Dr. Freeman Hrabowski III will deliver the keynote address at the signature yearly event. Dr. Hrabowski is well known for transforming the science program at University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) into one of the most respected in the country; authoring two critically acclaimed books; co-founding the lauded Meyerhoff Scholarship program; appearing in Spike Lee’s Academy Award-nominated documentary, “Four Little Girls;” and being chosen as one of seven of the Washington Post’s Top American Leaders. In April, Time magazine recognized him as one of the world’s 100 most influential people.

“We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Hrabowski as our inaugural annual business keynote speaker,” said Ted Hart, president and co-founder of the Maryland Corporate Council, a professional networking group for LGBT Marylanders. “Anyone who has ever heard one of his speeches can attest to the remarkable personality and energy he brings to every enterprise.”

Maryland Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown will also give remarks. The event is open for attendance to individuals and businesses. The direction of the Maryland Corporate Council’s mission, objectives and events will also be reviewed during the breakfast program.

The event is sponsored by Venable LLP, Saul Ewing LLP and Ernst & Young. Companies interested in sponsorship may contact membership@marylandcorporate.org or call 888-592-5777 x1.
