Michelle Tomallo, 2023 HRC Cleveland Leadership Awardee

HRC Cleveland set to recognize Michelle Tomallo with The Leadership Award. The Leadership Award is given to an individual who embodies the passion and dedication to advancing LGBTQ equality for the Greater Cleveland community. Join us for the HRC Cleveland dinner as we recognize and celebrate Michelle Tomallo’s leadership and the advancements she has driven through her advocacy and efforts.

Over the last twenty years, Michelle boosted visibility for LGBTQ-owned businesses, helped launch corporate ERG programs, developed LGBTQ-supplier diversity access, created lasting connections with neighborhood organizations, was key to the success of The 2014 Gay Games, and continues her work as an energetic advocate for LGBTQ rights.

Michelle is one of the cofounders of FIT Technologies, which was certified for many years as a women-owned and LGBTQ-owned firm and now is an employee-owned company. Outside of her work at FIT, she enthusiastically supports many philanthropic and advocacy organizations. Michelle served as the long-time Board President of Plexus, the LGBTQ and Allied Chamber of Commerce in Northeast Ohio, as well as the Executive Committee of the 2014 Gay Games. She currently serves on the boards of The Greater Cleveland Partnership, Cleveland Rape Crisis Center, Arts Impact, and The Warehouse District.
