Hope Scott '86, Vice President and Chief Risk and Compliance Officer for California Blue Shield, is among the “Most Influential Women in Corporate America” according to Savoy magazine.
The Oakland Post profiled Scott in connection with the honor.
From the article:
“I put in the time and hard work to earn a seat at the table,” Scott said. “When it wasn’t offered or wasn’t available to me, I took myself to another table where my experience, talent, and vision were not only welcomed, but celebrated.” This mindset has aided in helping her garnish 30 years of legal practice experience in the fields of health care and privacy law.
A highlight in Scott’s career is mentoring people and watching them succeed in their chosen fields. “I never do anything I don’t want to do, and I never stop having fun,” said Scott who encourages everyone to enjoy life.
Scott joined Blue Shield in 2012 as the company’s Chief Privacy Officer and Privacy Counsel. With 30 years of legal practice experience in the fields of health care and privacy law, Scott leads and oversees the operations of Blue Shield’s corporate integrity and risk management organization.
Prior to joining Blue Shield, Scott was the Global Chief Privacy Officer and Senior Privacy Counsel for Cigna. She was the principal of her own private law practice, focusing on providing legal and compliance counsel to health care providers and consumers, and she was senior counsel for Independence Blue Cross for 11 years.
Scott majored in political science at Bryn Mawr and earned her Juris Doctor from Boston University School of Law.
