Chicago City Clerk Anna Valencia taps female power players to improve status of city’s girls and women

Anna Valencia doesn’t like the term “think tank.”

“It’s a ‘do tank,’” she said.

Valencia, Chicago’s city clerk, is spearheading a new Status of Women and Girls in Chicago working group — a do tank, if you will — and the launch will be announced Monday afternoon.

The plan is to convene 120 women from a variety of industries and backgrounds — politics, education, nonprofit, corporate, service industry — and ask them to recommend citywide policies and initiatives that will make Chicago a safer, more equitable place for girls and women.
