Hot Diggity! Walks the Walk of LGBT-Certified Businesses

Jill Nelson, owner of Hot Diggity! Dog Walking + Pet Sitting, has been a member of ORPIB since 2008, when the organization was known as PABA.  In 2013 Jill's consulting firm, INUS Group was certified as an LGBTBE (LGBT Business Entity).  When she acquired Hot Diggity! she made sure that Hot Diggity! was also a certified business. 

"The value of having a certification is more than just the possibility of accessing supplier diversity chains and government contracts," says Jill.  "For me it is an important way of promoting our presence in the local, state and national economies that quantifies the LGBTQ+ community's contributions to economic development at all levels.  It is an official way of saying We're here, we're queer, and we contribute to the whole community so get used to it!

The impact of LGBTQ+ businesses is significant, in the Portland metro area, and all across Oregon.  We really are everywhere, just doing business every day, and being part of the chamber helps to illustrate that impact. 

This is why Hot Diggity! is a corporate partner.  We believe in the mission of ORPIB, and value the work of economic empowerment for the LGBTQ Community across Oregon and Southwest Washington.  To learn more about Hot Diggity!, and book a dog walk or a pet sit for your furry family members check out our Website and our News link where you can learn all about what we do.
