Chichi Nyagah-Nash and Melanie Shimano recognized as "Leading Women"


Congrats to DGS’ own Chichi Nyagah-Nash, former Deputy Division Chief for Fleet Management, and Melanie Shimano, Data  Automation & Technology Analyst, for their recognition by the Maryland Daily Record! This award recognizes women who’ve made huge career strides, alongside a commitment to volunteering.

Chichi Nyagah-Nash, in her role as the Deputy Division Chief for Fleet Management, spearheaded the City’s first gainsharing program. She was integral in the Master Lease Program and worked to bring new talent into Fleet through an apprenticeship program with city high schools. In her free time, Chichi serves as president of the board for Friends of Great Kids Farm, a local non-profit.

Melanie Shimano is working to help solve civic-tech problems within City government while streamlining processes for DGS workflows. In her work with the Code for the City program, and co-leading the Python for City Government Meetup, she has been helping push DGS into a more technologically driven direction.
