Aisha Bond '93
Aisha Bond '93 joined the board in 2018. She currently serves on the Facilities Master Planning Committee and Governance Committee.
Aisha studied global conflicts, their resolution, and rule of law concepts by majoring in political science with a focus on civil unrest in southern African countries at Spelman College and continued to concentrate on international business law and alternative dispute resolution at Georgetown University Law Center, graduating in 2002.
Thereafter, she began a two year clerkship in the D.C. Superior Court under the tutelage of Judge Kaye K. Christian when she served as the presiding judge in the probate and tax division. In 2006, she started a solo practice in estate planning and small business development and served “of counsel” in a colleague’s solo family practice. Responding to a need for young people to become empowered by civic understanding and civic responsibility, Aisha subsequently co-founded Lotus Institute of Law, a non-profit organization which utilized education, community programs, and court services to restore public faith in the court system and governance for which she developed several versions of an elementary and adolescent curriculum encouraging use of the justice system as a means of conflict resolution.
While maintaining a solo practice, Aisha began teaching Legal Research and Writing at Georgetown Law’s Charles Hamilton Houston Institute and both Legal Research and Writing and Moot Court at the University of the District of Columbia’s David A. Clark School of Law where she continues to work as an adjunct professor in academic support. Aisha has also served as legal adviser to PerWil Managment, an international development company, which among other things has worked on USAID-funded initiatives assessing potential development of textile manufacturing plants and industry in West Africa.
Currently, she serves as executive director of North Capitol Main Street, a non-profit organization working in tandem with the local government to facilitate micro-economic growth along the North Capitol Corridor of Washington, DC by stimulating and promoting small, local and minority-owned businesses, an area she is particularly passionate about, having started several of her own ventures, including a wholesale and market-based baking company, NanBon, in 2008. Aisha is a native of Washington, DC, an active volunteer and civic participant, a wife, and a mother of three.
