Comptroller Brooke Lierman visits with Business Women

March 2024:
On March 6, in celebration of Women’s Month and the International Women’s Day, Maryland Comptroller, Brooke Lierman, joined a Roundtable discussion with women bussiness owners at the  Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce regarding the topic “Beyond Pay Equity: Charting a Thriving Future for Women in Maryland’s Workforce”.  Ms. Lierman summarized the findings of the Comptroller’s 2023 State of the Economy Report and business representatives, including our CEO Linda Houk, shared C-suite insights and identified key areas for progress in policy.  Of notable interest, this is the first ever State of the Economy Report issued by a Maryland comptroller. As part of the report, it addresses how women affect the economy, not only by being part of the workforce, but also through household spending.  Additionally it showed Maryland had a disproportionate number of women dropping out of the workforce during the pandemic compared to neighboring states and the significant negative impact it made on Maryland’s economy.
