Anum is an analytical thinker, skilled facilitator, and strong believer in the power of local governments – especially cities – to effect meaningful change in residents' lives. Her work harnesses the power of strong relationships to drive sustainable positive social impact for residents, especially marginalized and vulnerable communities.
As one of the leaders of the American Cities Climate Challenge work at DA, Anum has worked alongside 25 U.S. cities and over 90 national and local partners as they have accelerated efforts to pass ambitious policies across the buildings, energy, and transportation sectors and lock in greenhouse gas emissions. Anum has worked to advance government innovation by engaging Mayors, fostering peer learning opportunities among cities, and using data and design thinking to transform the way cities work towards their goals.
Anum has also closely collaborated with non-profits to design and improve programs to drive economic mobility, the use of data & evidence, equitable fiscal health, and racial equity outcomes in partnership with local government and community partners.
In the aftermath of COVID-19, Anum supported the development of a digital dashboard that allowed city leaders and policy makers to take critical and timely action at the municipal level to ensure the health and safety of residents.
Prior to joining Delivery Associates, Anum led the Health Roadmap in the Chief Minister's Delivery Unit in Punjab, Pakistan, focusing on improving maternal and infant health outcomes. She also served as the Deputy Member on the UN High Level Panel on Women's Economic Empowerment, where she worked closely with government officials, economists, politicians, and private sector leaders to reduce global gender disparities in the economic sphere. In addition, she has experience on several economic growth and international education projects.
