This week, Forbes featured OSI-Baltimore Advisory Board member Alicia Wilson, who is the senior vice president of impact investments and senior legal counsel for Port Covington Impact Investments. The piece profiled not only Wilson’s work mentoring Baltimore City youth but also her position as a black, female attorney, and how that informs her desire to make sure young people are exposed to people of color in leadership positions.
“The vast majority of my professional day is spent in spaces where I am the minority with respect to my gender, race and, in many cases, socioeconomic background. I must help others understand the value of diversity,” Wilson said.
This past November, Wilson was able to bring 150 Baltimore City Schools students to meet Michelle Obama in November as part of her work with the CollegeBound Foundation, a nonprofit that works with Baltimore City Public School students to help them pursue post-secondary educations.
