Join WP+D for a networking brown bag on Friday, June 26 from 12:00 PM-1:00PM to talk with this month's featured guest: Anna Lee, Director of Community Impact for the Chicago Community Trust.
Anna Lee is director of community impact at The Chicago Community Trust. In this role, Lee manages the Trust’s strategic efforts in preventing and ending homelessness, decreasing food insecurity, increasing access to public benefits, public policy and advocacy and strengthening the nonprofit sector.
Prior to joining the Trust, Lee was the director of operations for Year Up Chicago, leading strategic planning efforts and overseeing day-to-day operations for the organization, which provides young adults with skills development, corporate internships and wraparound support. Before her work at Year Up Chicago, Lee was the director of research, reporting & communications, and later the director of strategic partnerships and management, at the Chicago Housing Authority.
Lee’s public sector experience includes directing the contracting process at the City of Chicago’s Department of Family and Support Services, and overseeing federally-funded community development grants at the City’s Office of Budget and Management’s Empowerment Zone. Lee earned a bachelor’s degree in philosophy from Boston College and master’s degrees in divinity and public policy, both from the University of Chicago. She currently serves on the board of Chicago’s Continuum of Care, which works to prevent and end homelessness in Chicago.
