I know, I know – there’s nothing worse than an obnoxiously long third-person biography. I promise that this will be replaced with a pithy, self-deprecating biography in the near future!
Daniel Wein is a digital and communications strategist, currently serving as Communications Manager at Green For All, an initiative of Dream Corps to seek out and amplify innovative public policy solutions that build an inclusive green economy. He’s also a participant of Remote Year, one of 75 professionals spending 2016 teleworking from a different city each month throughout South America, Europe and Asia.
Most recently, Daniel served as a press secretary for the Sierra Club’s Beyond Coal campaign. In that role, he worked on the Club’s flagship campaign to retire a third of U.S. coal plants by 2020, helping to communicate complex public policy issues surrounding energy regulation and public health into cohesive messaging that directly advanced the campaign’s state and national objectives. This included serving as communications lead and spokesperson in California and Ohio, two of the campaign’s most strategically important and high-profile states.
Prior to the Sierra Club, Daniel served as a digital strategist with Powell Tate, Weber Shandwick’s public affairs practice in Washington. His responsibilities included the conceptualization, execution and analysis of digital strategies with clients such as Healthcare.gov; United States Postal Service (USPS); Bank of America; and the Medical Imaging and Trade Alliance (MITA).
As the result of his digital and political activism, Daniel has appeared on Fox News, NBC News, BBC World Service and Al Jazeera America, in addition to being profiled in Mashable, USA Today, the Sydney Morning Herald and Metro Weekly. He has also spoken to a State Department group of international NGO leaders on successfully leveraging social media to reach youth advocates; hosted an international affairs discussion program on BBC World Service; and won an award from Twitter & MuckRack for his innovative use of Vine.
