  • Implementing a 3-5 year DEI strategic plan
  • Launching Sundays on State, a FREE interactive block party that closed State Street to vehicular traffic.
    • Attendees came from every Chicago zip code
    • Over 69% of participants were from underrepresented communities
    • Majority of vendors from minority- and woman-owned businesses 
    • Marketing outreach through minority-owned and minority-focused outlets and vendors
  • Introduced the Everyone's Neighborhood initiative, aimed at unifying the community and ensuring that the Loop is truly a home for every Chicagoan
