Montgomery County LGBT Business Council & 1776 at Ambler Yards to Co-Host LGBTQ Cultural Competency Trainings
On Wednesday, November 28th, the Montgomery County LGBT Business Council and 1776 at Ambler Yards are cohosting the first of what hopes to be many LGBTQ Cultural Competency Trainings at the Ambler Yards campus in Lower Gwynedd Township, PA.
Presenting will be Todd Snovel, who serves as the Executive Director of the Pennsylvania Commission on LGBTQ Affairs. Recently created by Governor Tom Wolf, it is the only such commission in the entire country.
“This workshop will equip community leaders with the information, skills, and language to be forward-thinking when it comes to engaging their LGBTQ populations and to create inclusive culture,” said Snovel.
This interactive training session will focus on creating inclusive workspaces. It will equip business, organizational and industry leaders with the knowledge and tools to be responsive to the needs of their LGBTQ colleagues, clients, and community partners. Participants will learn inclusive vocabulary, tips for making their work policies and cultures affirming and understand how to be visible allies to the LGBTQ community. Participants will receive Certification for LGBTQ+ Cultural Competency in the Workplace from the Montgomery County LGBT Business Council.
The trainings are not the first manifestation of the recent partnership between the Montgomery County LGBT Business Council and 1776 at Ambler Yards, a coworking site and business incubator located on the Ambler Yards campus. Recently, both organizations worked together to craft the new Ambler Yards Anti-Discriminatory Policy which took effect this past September.
“The Montgomery County LGBT Business Council is thrilled to be able to offer these trainings to its members, and I believe we are the first business chamber in the county to do so,” said Richard Buttacavoli, co-founder and President of the MCLGBTBC. “The LGBTQ community has a high brand loyalty and we are active in using our purchasing power, estimated at $917 billion in 2015, with companies that have a positive presence in our community. As more people self-identify as LGBTQ+, organizations of all kinds should be more cognizant.”
Seating for the inaugural training is limited to 50 and will be free to invited guests, Professional and Social members of the MCLGBTBC and members of 1776 at Ambler Yards. Non-members are $25. The 2- hour session begins at 3 pm will have a break midway with light refreshments. Attendees are encouraged to RSVP by November 18th to ensure a seat.
After the session, there will be an after party/membership drive at the 1776 space on the Ambler Yards campus. This event begins at 5:30 pm and is free for session participants and the public at large. Attendees will learn about membership in the MCLGBTBC, membership at 1776 at Ambler Yards and will have a chance to network. Food and drink will be served, free of charge.

1776 at Ambler Yards and the Montgomery County LGBT Business Council are joining forces to promote business incubation among the LGBT Community of Montgomery County and its allies. Besides mutual benefits for members of 1776 and the LGBT Business Council, both organizations came together to formulate the Ambler Yards Anti-Discriminatory Policy.
Found on the Ambler Yards website, the new policy states as follows:
“Ambler Yards values workplace diversity and is committed to guaranteeing and promoting equal opportunity in the workplace and in our relationships with vendors, customers, contractors, and the public at large. In our efforts to provide an environment free of discrimination and harassment where all individuals are treated with respect and dignity, Ambler Yards follows a policy of not discriminating against anyone based on: age, marital status, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, race, color, ethnicity or religious background, descent or nationality, disability, HIV/AIDS status, military status, physical stature, pregnancy, childbirth or medical condition related to pregnancy or childbirth or any other factor deemed unlawful by respective federal, state, or local laws.”
“We are so pleased to have the Montgomery County LGBT Business Council in the fold here at 1776 at Ambler Yards. We are all inclusive here, not only in our coworking space but in the whole Ambler Yards campus – all we’ve done is make it public. We are proud to let the County and everyone else know that all are welcome!” said Ben Bergman, Ambler Yards Campus Manager.
Members of the Montgomery County LGBT Business Council can receive a discounted membership at 1776 at Ambler Yards. More than just coworking, 1776 at Ambler Yards is a community for mobile professionals, entrepreneurs, and startups. Members gain access to a dynamic network and focused programming to provide the knowledge and resources necessary to spur innovation, grow businesses and revitalize industries.
Richard Buttacavoli, Co-Founder and President of the Council, shared that “The Montgomery County LGBT Business Council is thrilled to partner with 1776 at Ambler Yards. Diversity and inclusion are essential to organizations that are innovative, grow, and succeed in the 21st century. Companies that attract such a diverse workforce lead their industries by developing intersectionality in their workforce, culture and customer base.” Buttacavoli added, “The next generation of talent recruiters and marketers have embraced inclusive core principles that attract great employees as well as sophisticated, loyal customers. 1776 at Ambler Yards champions these values, a reflection of our mission — this is why partnership was such an easy decision.”
