    She will speak Friday at a workshop hosted by the Silicon Valley chapter of Public Allies and recount the organization's impact on her life when she served as its executive director in Chicago in 1993. The event is not open to the public.

    Public Allies, a 25-year-old nonprofit, focuses on guiding young people into education and leadership roles.
