Danielle Silber is the Director of Corporate Engagement for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) where she leads a team to develop corporate partnerships to help further civil rights through cause marketing, consumer education, employee engagement and corporate advocacy. In the wake of the Muslim Ban and increasing threats to voting rights, racial justice, women’s rights, LGBTQ rights, and the very foundation of our democracy, Danielle has helped hundreds of companies leverage their resources to help protect the rights of their employees and customers. Danielle co-founded Don’t Ban Equality, a network of 600+ companies promoting the right to comprehensive reproductive healthcare, including abortion, as critical for advancing gender equity in the workplace and in society. Danielle has also led dozens of company-facing workshops on the importance of addressing racial justice and voting rights as part of businesses’ civic engagement programming.
Previously she headed up Corporate Alliances for the International Rescue Committee (IRC) where she had the privilege of designing cause marketing campaigns with brands like HBO’s Game of Thrones and employment recruitment pipelines for companies like Chipotle to destigmatize and support refugees in the United States and abroad.
Before joining the IRC, Danielle taught International Studies at Washington University in St. Louis and in her spare time, served on the board of and ran the New York chapter of COLAGE, a national youth advocacy and education organization by and for people with one or more Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and/or Transgender parents.
