Robyn Scates has always had a passion for children and the welfare of others. In fact, it is that very passion that led her to an accomplished career in law and business development. And it is that same dedication that roused awareness in her and, in many ways, guided her most fulfilling venture as a motivational speaker, life coach and author of her first book Bringing Peace Into Your Inner Sanctuary.Robyn simply cares about people. She has spent her life uplifting and inspiring youth and adults to reach their full potential. You but have to look at what she’s done for proof of that. She is the Founder and CEO of PROUD1, a non-profit that teaches adults and youth how to be successful in business and everyday life; the general counsel and vice president of Corporate Governance and Chief Diversity Officer for a national nonprofit and she is the sole practitioner for Scates Legal Group. All of that and, somehow, she still finds time to give back to the next generation of legal minds as an adjunct professor at the University of Baltimore and Morgan State University.One might wonder how she is able to do it all. Robyn will tell you that it hasn’t always been so easy. She learned to juggle it all after finding a way to “bring peace into her inner sanctuary.” She knows, from experience, that only through inner peace can one really endeavor to do meaningful things for others.Robyn serves on Boards for the University of Baltimore, Hoffberger Center for Professional Ethics, the Mobile Shoebox; as former president of the Alliance of Black Woman Attorneys and she has been, twice, named one of Maryland’s Top 100 Women by The Daily Record.Robyn holds a BA in Political Science, Juris Doctor, and is currently working on her Ph.D. in Leadership & Management. She has been married for two decades and, together, she and her husband Terry have two sons.
