Conscious Capitalism of Central Maryland (C3MD), a non-profit purpose-driven business community, announced this month new officers to the board of directors, per its bylaws, and a renewed mission to promote the philosophy of Conscious Capitalism in the Baltimore/Washington Corridor. Conscious Capitalism builds on the foundations of capitalism — voluntary exchange, entrepreneurship, competition, freedom to trade, and the rule of law. These are essential to a healthy functioning economy, as are other elements of Conscious Capitalism including trust, compassion, collaboration, and value creation.
Eboni Adams Monk is the new president of C3MD, taking over for Wendy Moomaw who led the organization for the last four years (thank you, Wendy!). Eboni is the Marketing Director for Advanced Refining Technologies (ART), a joint venture between Chevron and W.R. Grace. In her role, she leads global marketing activities for ART, a leading supplier of hydroprocessing catalysts that produce cleaner fuels and trusted advisor to the world’s refiners. Eboni has trained leaders in Six Sigma and Facilitative Leadership principles and has received numerous leadership and teamwork awards. She is also a mother, mentor, and wisdom-keeper – her passion for transformational leadership is demonstrated in her success with leading high-achieving, global, cross-functional teams for over 20 years.
“Interest is high about how the business community can do things differently and that is what Conscious Capitalism is really about,” says Monk. “We will continue to educate ourselves and others about the tenets of Conscious Capitalism and the relationship between those principles and how they influence being a conscious business.”
The new vice-president, Liz Richardson is co-founder and owner of Indigo Ink Digital Printing Inc., a full-service print shop located in Columbia, Md. Liz, along with her husband Matt and a business partner, launched Indigo Ink in 2003, believing this new company could better serve quality-driven clients. Indigo Ink has grown over the years, serving thousands of clients across the country. However, staying true to purpose, Indigo Ink still focuses primarily on building client relationships in the local Baltimore/DC area.
Other officers who are continuing their positions include: Secretary Sandy Young, a licensed Architectural Engineer, a Certified Construction Manager, and a LEED Accredited Professional in green building and design; Treasurer Kevin Howard, Certified Public Accountant. And Board Member at Large is the Rev. Brian Akers, Senior Minister at the Oneness Center for Spiritual Living Columbia, who will also help co-chair the organization’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee. Former C3MD President Wendy Moomaw remains on the Board to help keep continuity and looks forward to co-chairing the organization’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee among other things.
