Elizabeth Kohm is the Deputy Executive Director of PFLAG. In her role, Beth manages support of the PFLAG chapter network through the field and policy operations as well as oversees development and communications. During her time at PFLAG, she has also directed the Care with Pride partnership with the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies, a first of its kind marketing and awareness campaign and coordinated the amicus brief submissions on marriage equality to the Circuit Court of Appeals as well as the Supreme Court.
When she joined PFLAG in 2011, she brought more than twenty years’ experience as a senior manager in different nonprofit organizations and also managed the charitable programs for Cisco Learning Institute. Prior to her tenure working in corporate social responsibility and nonprofit management, she worked for the New York State Assembly. Beyond her personal passion for the PFLAG mission, Beth’s years working for an addiction treatment organization gives her a keen understanding of the devastating impact that the lack of sexuality acceptance can have for individuals and their families. Beth has also worked both professionally and personally in grassroots approaches to improving schools for all students.
Beth holds a bachelor’s degree in political science from the Nelson Rockefeller School of Public Affairs and Policy from the University of Albany, New York. A resident of Alexandria, Virginia, Beth and her husband Bob are the proud parents of two sons and spends her time when she is not at PFLAG cheering them on in the bleachers of their many baseball games.
