At Northwestern University

Prior to his election, Pawar was on staff at Northwestern University in the Office of Emergency Management. At Northwestern, he was responsible for the development of a university-wide business continuity program. While working at Northwestern University, he and two of his classmates from the University of Chicago were awarded a contract from Taylor and Francis to write a textbook based on their work in emergency management. The textbook is based on a model Ameya developed with two of his classmates at the University of Chicago's MSTRM program — the model is called Social Intelligence. Their work calls for the real-time aggregation of data to develop composite views of communities to better inform emergency preparedness, mitigation, response and recovery activities. Pawar and his co-authors have presented their work at annual Federal Emergency Management Agency conferences and other national conferences since 2008. He holds a M.S. in Threat and Response Management from the University of Chicago and a master's degee in public administration from the Illinois Institute of Technology. The textbook was released on December 29, 2014.

He is enrolled in a third master's degree program at the University of Chicago in the school of Social Service Administration. In 2009, Ameya was a US State Department Scholar. In 2011, Pawar was named to the Crains Chicago Business 40 under 40 list. He was also recognized by the New Leaders Council as an emerging leader under 40 in 2011. In 2012, he was named an Edgar Fellow by the University of Illinois.

Political career

In 2011, Gov. Patrick Quinn appointed Pawar to the Illinois Innovation Council. Pawar is the only elected official on this statewide council. In 2013, Gov. Patrick Quinn appointed Ald. Pawar to the Asian American Employment Plan Council.

Pawar was listed as a surrogate on the Obama 2012 campaign.

In December 2012, Pawar introduced an ordinance creating an Office of Independent Budget Analysis. This proposal and major reform creates an office which would provide City Council with independent analysis of privatization efforts and the annual budget. New York City and Pittsburgh have similar offices. The ordinance was immediately sent to Rules Committee where it is currently buried. In August 2013, Mayor Rahm Emanuel threw his support behind Pawar's budget office proposal and the proposal passed in December 2013. In May 2015, former Governor Quinn senior staffer Ben Winnick was rolled out as consensus candidate to run the new independent budget office. This after Pawar waged a behind the scenes campaign to prevent a former alderman from obtaining the appointment.

In April 2013, Pawar introduced the TIF Accountability ordinance. This ordinance passed City Council in July 2013. For the first time, Chicago will publish TIF promises versus what is finally delivered. According to Pawar, the TIF accountability ordinance is major TIF reform and will prevent companies from forcing Chicago into paying TIF subsidies.

In March 2015, Pawar gave a TEDx talk titled: Deciding to Decide. This talk featured Pawar's signature effort of creating a neighborhood K-12 system in the area he represents and the greater north side of Chicago. Pawar's GROW47 effort recently scaled from the 47th ward to three wards. Ald. Pawar is leading an effort to create a system within a system. The scaled effort, GROWCommunity, is gaining recognition across the City for attempting to provide all families equity and stability. The GROWCommunity effort was recognized by the Urban Land Institute with a 2015 Vision Award. Since that time GROWCommunity has been working to obtain non-profit status so that Pawar's work can continue after he leaves office. GROWCommunity is recognized now citywide as a model for linking communities to neighborhood schools and high schools.

In 2015, Pawar was appointed co-chair of the Working Families Task Force. The task force will provide Mayor Emanuel with recommendations for paid sick leave, paid family leave, and scheduling protections for hourly workers. In 2014, Mayor Emanuel appointed Pawar to the Minimum Wage Working Group. The work of that group led to a Chicago minimum wage of $13/hr.

In April 2016, Pawar introduced the Earned Sick Time ordinance with a coalition of aldermen and advocacy groups. The ordinance passed in June 2016 and will take effect on July 1, 2017 impacting over 500k workers in Chicago.

While running for office, he created a 'first generation' Open 311 app named Chicago Works. This app enabled Chicago residents to make service requests from their iPhone. A new version of the Chicago Works app is available in the Apple app store. Chicago Works is the first app to connect directly into the City of Chicago's 311 system. It's the first app developed after the Open 311 announcement.

Committee assignments

  • Zoning, Landmarks and Buildings Standards
  • Special Events, Cultural Affairs and Recreation
  • Committees, Rules and Ethics

Editorial opinions
  • Prior to taking office, Pawar authored an opinion article in the Chicago Sun-Times that outlined the need for Chicago to attract manufacturing jobs through an industrial cluster initiative.
  • He co-authored an opinion article with Ald. Pat Dowell on Mayor Emanuel's Infrastructure Trust proposal. As a result of their opinion piece, the language in the legislation was changed.
  • In February 2013, Pawar authored an op-ed titled, "Insure Guns to Ensure We Save Lives." This opinion piece was published by the Chicago Tribune. In it, Pawar argues for the requirement of gun liability insurance in order to own a gun. Pawar argues that gun liability insurance would curb straw purchases.

Emergency Management and Social Intelligence: A Comprehensive All-Hazards Approach
Emergency Management and Social Intelligence: A Comprehensive All-Hazards Approach
For effective preparedness, emergency managers must comprehend how a disaster impacts not only the physical infrastructure of the affected community but also the population. They must understand how the people interact with one another, how they interact with government, and how they react to the disaster event. In other words, they must have social intelligence. Emergency Management and Social Intelligence: A Comprehensive All-Hazards Approach provides a comprehensive framework for understanding a community before, during, and after a disaster in order to best mitigate the effect of a disaster on its people. After an overview of what we’ve learned and what we haven’t learned from past events, the book provides detailed case studies on a spectrum of disasters spanning a century, including hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, and oil spills. This context provides a framework for understanding a host of essential issues, including: The interplay between how people perceive people in their communities, the public policy which results from socially constructed views, and the issues which surface during and after disaster as a result The base logic of Social Intelligence which is rooted in the U.S. national security and intelligence apparatus The application of the intelligence cycle in emergency management and how to develop and understand situational awareness Baseline data points applicable to any community or jurisdiction and how they can be woven together to build on existing jurisdictional competence and real-time situational awareness How geographic information systems (GISs) are used in emergency management, along with their limitations and the different software programs available Modeling for disasters and how this helps the emergency management community plan for and respond to disasters How emergency managers can use social intelligence to build resiliency at the local level and harness preexisting community strength before, during, and after a disaster The insight presented in this volume supplies emergency managers, policy makers, and elected officials with a powerful blueprint for implementing social intelligence in any community or organization, maximizing the effectiveness of disaster recovery efforts. Equally important, this volume supplies emergency managers, municipalities, government organizations, and private sector entities with a framework to understand and identify social and economic fault lines in communities.

Transforming Agriculture, Transforming India
"Agriculture forms the backbone of India's Economy as the livelihood of more than Sixty percent of the country's inhabitants depends directly or indirectly on agriculture.In the past decade, India and Indian agriculture have faced numerous grave challenges such as effects of climate change and Global warming and natural calamities and a Global Economic downturn.Since 2004, when Shri Sharad Pawar, himself an agriculturist, took over as Union Minister for Agriculture, a number of measures were introduced and existing schemes strengthened to improve the state of agriculture in India by not only addressing existing challenges but also by making India's farmers capable of tackling future challenges.Measures such as encouraging adoption of appropriate crop patterns, projects to ensure better grain yields, empowering agriculture-related institutions of research and development have resulted in India being self-sufficient not only in agriculture but also taking giant strides in related sectors such as horticulture, fisheries, floriculture.Through Shri Sharad Pawar's speeches, delivered on numerous important occasions, readers will get a glimpse of this fascinating story of India's agricultural transformation."
