City Manager Wally Bobkiewicz has appointed Rev. Dr. Patricia A. Efiom as the City’s Equity and Empowerment Coordinator. This position was created last year to provide coordination and leadership regarding issues of access, equity, and empowerment to City services, programs and offerings to the Evanston community.
Dr. Efiom served as the chief executive officer of the Ebenezer AME Church in Evanston from 2010 to 2016. Her responsibilities also included managing two senior Department of Housing and Urban Development properties housing 200 residents in Evanston. Dr. Efiom has also served as the project director of the Garrett-Evanston CDF Freedom Schools Program since 2014.
“Evanston is incredibly fortunate to have Pat Efiom agree to take on a new role after many years of being a leader and conscience of our community,” said Mr. Bobkiewicz. “She understands the challenges we face in our City, State and nation to provide equitable programs and services to all. I welcome Pat to our team.”
