Dior Ashley Brown

Engagement Intern

Dior is a woman on a mission. A community builder, humanitarian, activist, entrepreneur and musician, she is a seasoned, respected member of the D.C. creative scene and beyond, committed to empowering all people, especially Black women and girls, and leaving a legacy of positive change. Dubbed the “Hip-Hop Polymath” by The Washington Post, Dior knows how to create impact. She is founder of the DC Music Summit, a premier music conference and exchange hub.

Dior is a Duke Ellington School of the Arts alumna, and holds a bachelor’s degree in theatre arts from the University of Maryland. As the engagement intern, Dior joins the NCRP team in support of its mission of giving voice to the silenced where it counts: at the philanthropic level. At her core, she is about breaking down barriers and sparking a movement, revealing the ways diversity lends greater understanding of what it means to be human.
