Elevated Chicago’s work is guided, implemented and evaluated by a Steering Committee.
Three working groups (WG) comprised of steering committee members and other key stakeholders are charged with designing and implementing strategies around Capital and Programs, Systems Change, and Knowledge Sharing. Inclusive Community Tables (CT) at our sites inform our strategies and determine our priorities in support of capital projects, programs, policies, narratives, data, and technical assistance. A council of senior leaders from across the city and region will help advance systemic change and work plan implementation.
Our Steering Committee
