Robin Williams Wood is completing her last year at the University of Maryland-Francis King Carey School of Law. Wood has been active in Baltimore’s civic life since her arrival to the city in 1995. She has worked in nonprofit management and governance roles with a number of Baltimore-area organizations that focus on breaking down barriers to opportunity for residents who find themselves locked out or left out of the mainstream. Wood served as co-chair of the Safe and Sound Campaign board of directors, and subsequently as the campaign’s deputy director from 1998 to 2005. In addition to her service on the Open Society Institute-Baltimore advisory board, she has also served on the governing boards of the Associated Black Charities, the Baltimore Community Foundation, the Baltimore School for the Arts, the Center for Urban Families, and the Community Law Center.
