Mark oversees the Foundation’s evaluation activities to articulate and measure DCBF’s impact in the civil legal justice community. He also works with DCBF’s Director of Programs to strategize and design programming to best serve the District and then evaluate how those programs are delivering and if they are working well.
Mark has more than 25 years of experience building the capacity of individuals and organizations by engaging more effectively in strategic partnerships and networks. Within the arenas of workforce development, teacher preparation, health professions education and college access, the focus has been on building strong sustainable relationships.
Mark joined the DC Bar Foundation in October 2018. In his daily work with DCBF and others to facilitate collective impact to address problems, he believes it is important to “know the problem you want to solve and that tells you who needs to be at the table in order to solve the problem.”
Through his work, Mark defines justice as “necessary,” hoping to disrupt the school-to-prison pipeline and to implement more strategies to reduce racial justice gaps.
Mark received his Bachelor of Arts in Black Studies from The College of Wooster.
Mark enjoys the outdoors, reading, and making his family’s farm into a productive piece of land.
