This month we're going to host leadership from Mayor Emanuel's Technology Industry Diversity Council (http://www.cityofchicago.org/city/en/depts/mayor/press_room/press_releases/2013/january_2013/mayor_emanuel_appointschicagosfirstevertechnologyindustrydiversi.html). They've been hard at work since they were constituted earlier this year, and they have a series of recommendations that will be presented in the Mayor's Office Technology Plan.

Be sure to sign up to get a sneak peek and deep discussion of the Tech Diversity Council recommendations prior to their publication in the City's Technology Plan. Co-chairs Neal Sales-Griffin (http://www.linkedin.com/in/nealsalesgriffin) and Gabrielle Lyon (http://www.linkedin.com/in/gabriellehlyon) will be here alongside City of Chicago Chief Technology Officer (https://twitter.com/ChicagoCTO) John Tolva (http://www.linkedin.com/in/jntolva) to expose these ideas to a wider audience and enlist anyone who wants to help. Other members of the Tech Diversity Council to be in attendance as well.

We'll also hear from Tina Fassett (http://www.linkedin.com/pub/tina-fassett-leed-ga/4/792/874) of the DePaul University Institute for Housing Studies (http://www.housingstudies.org/) about their new Data Portal with 5 data sets broken into 16 housing market indicators available at multiple geographies for Cook County (http://www.housingstudies.org/dataportal/info/).

As usual, if you have any announcements or agenda items, let us know!
