Fund Board Member Kim Evans Believes in “Transformational” Leadership

On this #20thAnniversaryTuesday, transformational leader Kim Evans discusses innovation in the financial services industry, work as a Fund Board Member, and growing up as a CPS student.

“I grew up on the South Side of Chicago. I am a graduate of CPS from kindergarten, elementary, all the way through to high school. And so I think what I have to bring the Fund is the practical experience of having grown up in the system to help us lead forward in terms of the work that we’re doing.”
