In the Frunchroom: Amara Enyia

Our July show has snuck up on us a bit. It’s Thursday! So we’ve got only four days to get to know our readers, starting with Dr. Amara Enyia.

Dr. Amara Enyia is a Public Policy expert on city and state policy as well as international affairs/foreign policy with expertise in Central Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East. She writes extensively on issues of education, economic development, fiscal policy and systems thinking.

Dr. Enyia is a public policy consultant. She received her M.Ed., JD and PhD from the University of Illinois-Urbana. In addition to her consulting work, Dr. Enyia serves as the President of Blue 1647, an entrepreneurship and technology innovation center. She is also the Executive Director of the Austin Chamber of Commerce and serves as Policy Director for the Chicago Principals and Administrators Association.

Dr. Enyia, a resident of Garfield Park, will read a piece of improvised non-fiction. See her and six other readers this Thursday at 730pm at Beverly Woods.
