Angela J. Scott


U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the General Counsel, Civil Rights Division

As an attorney and adviser for the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services’ Office of the General Counsel, Civil Rights Division, Angela J. Scott addresses compliant investigations, compliance reviews and settlement negotiations before formal enforcement proceedings.

Involved with multiple professional organizations over the years, she was appointed to the American Bar Association’s Individual Rights & Responsibilities Section Council in 2012 and continues to serve. Scott counts her election to the Maryland State Democratic Central Committee in 2010 as her proudest accomplishment.

In 2010, she organized a volunteer initiative 10weeks10deeds, which invited people give their time to organizations for 10 consecutive weeks. The initiative, which starts annually on the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, has grown steadily each year.

“I can’t imagine life without giving back,” she said.
