As the Vice-President of People & Culture, Ramonica D.M. Moore plays a pivotal role in propelling the organization’s vision forward. She is instrumental in crafting and instituting innovative people and culture strategies, while continuously refining existing systems and processes. Her initiatives in the realm of people and culture emphasize not only diversity, equity and inclusification (not to be confused with “inclusion”), but also honor varied abilities and focus on fostering a genuine sense of belonging.
Ramonica (She/Her/Hers), with a career spanning over two decades, possesses a tapestry of experiences that straddle the education, nonprofit and corporate realms.
In the nascent phase of her professional journey, she plunged into the worlds of education and nonprofit. Ramonica walked the corridors of public schools as an educator, championed the DC Public Charter school movement as an administrator and imparted knowledge as a college/university lecturer. In the nonprofit arena, she assumed pivotal roles in think tanks, advocacy consortiums and sector-centric membership bodies. Transitioning to the corporate world, she seamlessly amalgamated her expertise in people and culture with the unique demands of burgeoning businesses, thereby establishing foundational human capital blueprints. Ramonica’s strategic foresight has been instrumental to a spectrum of organizations — from a research consulting firm devoted to the child welfare system and steered by lived experts, to corporations revolutionizing the construction domain. Among these are an underground infrastructure behemoth, an engineering project scheduling firm behind iconic projects like the National Museum of African American History and Culture and a real estate investment powerhouse dedicated to creating affordable housing solutions.
Furthermore, Ramonica’s academic pedigree is both expansive and eclectic. During her undergraduate studies, she delved into a diverse mélange of Philosophy, Religious Studies, International Studies and Women’s Studies. Her advanced educational pursuits encompass a Master of Arts in English, a Master of Liberal Arts dual-specializing in Africana Studies and NonProfit Management & Community Development and a Master of Business Administration.
Ramonica is still considered “new” to Minnesota, but has deep roots with her family having resided here for the past two plus decades.
