Throughout her professional life, Alicia Shelton has been guided and mentored by a number of female leaders. That is why she is committed to paying it forward so other young women recognize what they are capable of achieving.
Shelton worked closely with Judge Lynne A. Battaglia on the book, “Finding Justice: A History of Women Lawyers in Maryland” — a historical look at the struggles women face in the legal profession and what goals still remain.
“Having worked with Alicia throughout all stages of her professional development, I have witnessed firsthand how she has carried the spirit of ‘Finding Justice’ throughout her own legal career,” Battaglia said.
She also works with ¡Adelante Latina!, an academic enrichment, college preparatory and scholarship program for Latina girls in Baltimore high schools. Shelton meets with students weekly to assist with SAT prep, vocabulary and writing, and supports them to overcome educational barriers.
“I recognize the integral role that others have played in my success and have committed myself to doing what I can to support the professional advancement of women in my community and throughout Maryland,” Shelton said.
