Announcing the Jacky Fund
Making Jacky Grimshaw a sustainable resource, preparing Black and Brown women for leadership roles in transportation in Chicago and beyond
For four decades, Jacky Grimshaw, CNT’s Vice President for Government Relations, has been one of a few women leaders of color influencing transportation decision-making. Over her 30+ year career at CNT, Jacky Grimshaw has brought creativity, public policy expertise, and mediation skills to leverage public resources for transportation policy that serves people and communities.
CNT seeks to make Jacky’s vision, experience, knowledge, and drive a renewable resource by creating a pipeline of Black and Brown women who are prepared to take on leadership roles in the sector. The Fund will support a new program of full-time fellowships and internships at CNT for women of color.

WBEZ Curious City | October 19, 2023
It’s an all-too-familiar scene: Chicago gets hit with fast, heavy rain, and then the city is left with sewage backup and flooded basements. It’s a costly headache for residents and the city, and over the years, it’s gotten many Curious City listeners wondering why this happens so often and what can be done about it.
CNT is engaged by governments, advocates, policy makers, and community groups to apply our expertise to solving problems.
