Black History Month Spotlight: Marcus Mundy

This week we finish up our series celebrating Black History Month with a spotlight on another inspiring Black leader we are fortunate to work with, Coalition of Communities of Color’s Marcus C. Mundy.

Mundy is the executive director at the Coalition of Communities of Color, a racial equity-focused, 19-member organization focusing on issues of social and economic justice using a racial equity lens.

Mundy arrived from the Portland-based equity, compliance, and strategic consulting firm, Mundy Consulting LLC. His practice assisted clients in various disciplines including but not limited to achieving equity, diversity, and inclusion in personnel, contract development, and administrative areas; achieving compliance with respect to applicable laws, regulations, and accreditation standards for their respective businesses including HIPPA, Sarbanes Oxley, and other federal and state regulations; and helping disparate corporate and community entities connect in new and productive ways.

Prior to his role at Mundy Consulting, he served as the president and CEO of the Urban League of Portland (a civil rights, employment, and social services organization) and was the vice president and regional compliance officer for Kaiser Permanente Northwest, where he was responsible for directing staff and resources focused on risk mitigation and compliance matters. He has extensive experience in financial, operational, compliance, and regulatory functions including as management-level staff at KPMG LLC and as treasurer at Denver Health and Hospital Authority.

Mundy has served and continues to serve the community through his participation on numerous boards and community advisory positions. He proudly served on the Oregon Health Fund Board, which was instrumental in changing how healthcare policy is developed and health services are delivered in Oregon. Mundy attended Howard University in Washington, DC, where he received his bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. He also received his Master of Business Administration degree from the University of Oregon. He is a Senior Fellow in Oregon’s chapter of the American Leadership Forum, Oregon’s premier leadership training group for over two decades. Mundy resides in Portland with his family.

We are proud to work with leaders like Mundy and look forward to his continued work to create a more equitable world through his efforts in the Denver community. You can learn more about the Coalition of Communities of Color by visiting its website.
