Dana Gold currently serves as GAP's Senior Fellow and oversees its education initiatives, the American Whistleblower Tour: Essential Voices for Accountability and its Curriculum Project, which aim to educate the public, particularly college students and faculty, about the import role whistleblowers play in promoting institutional accountability. 

Dana has had a lifelong professional relationship with whistleblowers and GAP. She joined GAP in 1991 as a student fellow, continuing on as a legal intern. From 1995-2002, she served as GAP’s Director of Operations and a staff attorney, representing whistleblowers who disclosed fraud and serious threats to public health, safety, and the environment on the Trans-Alaskan pipeline, at several Superfund sites, and at contractor-operated nuclear facilities such as Hanford, Rocky Flats, Lawrence Livermore, and Los Alamos.

From 2003-2008, Dana cofounded and served as Director of the Center on Corporations, Law & Society at Seattle University School of Law, which promoted interdisciplinary scholarship and multi-stakeholder dialogue on issues related to the roles and obligations of corporations in society. She also taught whistleblower law and corporate governance as an adjunct professor. Having built a successful Corporate Directors Training Program for board directors and senior management while at Seattle University, Gold was recruited to serve as the Program Director for Corporate Governance Executive Education for Boston College Law School before returning to her work with GAP to build its own education initiative in 2011.

In addition to her current role at GAP, Dana serves as an employee advocacy member of the Hanford Concerns Council, a unique alternative resolution dispute body that resolves complex whistleblower issues at the Hanford nuclear site in Washington state. Gold, who serves on the board of Hanford Challenge, a GAP-spin off organization, most recently served as Network Fellow at Harvard University’s Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics for 2014-2015, focusing on whistleblowing and institutional corruption.
