“Challenging corporate abuse speaks to my most basic values of social justice and fairness,” says Marcia.
For almost thirty years, Marcia has lived out these values in part by participating in the work of Corporate Accountability since the 1990s. In 2014, she became a board member, bringing 35 years of nonprofit board, philanthropic, and social work experience.
She served as associate executive director at the Jewish Family Service Association of Cleveland. She has served on the boards of numerous other organizations in Greater Cleveland, including Divorce Equity, Women’s Community Foundation of Cleveland, WCPN-FM, ACLU – Cleveland Chapter, Cuyahoga Community College, Cleveland College of Jewish Studies, Jewish Federation of Cleveland, and Through the Flower (a national nonprofit arts management organization). She holds volunteer leadership roles with the Greater Cleveland Congregations, Social Venture Partners, and Cleveland Public Theatre. She has degrees from Northwestern University and the Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences at Case Western Reserve University.
She notes that she was afraid to retire because she didn’t think she could find anything interesting to do. “Now I’m as busy as I ever was with much more challenging work in nonprofit governance.”
