 LEADERSHIP
& MANAGEMENT


A successful organization begins with the teamwork of many individuals. The OIC/DC leadership and management team is full of hardworking people who thrive on teamwork to effect real change.

Leadership

Dr. Carlton W. Veazey, Board Chair 

Dr. Carlton Wadsworth Veazey's ministerial history is extensive. He represents the third generation of ministers in his family and is eminently prepared for this role, both academically and experientially. Dr. Veazey has always been a visionary in his ministry: he was the first minister in the greater Washington, DC area to ordain a woman in the Baptist church. He continues the legacy of ordaining female ministers to this day.

Dr. Veazey's dedication to the community is equally exemplary as noted by his appointment by former President Nixon to the DC City Council and his service as executive director of the mayor's Manpower Services Planning Advisory Council. He is past President and Chief Executive Officer of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, having retired in 2011.
