Danielle Lane has 20+ years of international development, training, education, and MERL experience in the Middle East, Europe, and Latin America. Prior to coming to DT Global, she worked at EnCompass as a Sr. Learning and Leadership Advisor embedded in USAID’s Global Health Professional and Organizational Development Program (GHPOD II, now GHTASC) where she led the design, delivery, and evaluation of learning and leadership activities within the Bureau. In addition to leading the Bureau’s multi-pronged Culture of Leadership and Leadership at All Levels efforts, her portfolio includs professional development, organizational development, and leadership coaching. Her work at GHPOD II included utilizing micro-learning, delivering blended immersive programming, developing e-Learning modules with SMEs, designing podcasts, and facilitating strategic retreats and co-creation activities. Danielle was also the POC for all major workshops and conferences such as the Global Health Leaders Meeting, GHTechX, The Malaria Religious and Community Leaders Workshop, PPL’s Evaluation and Learning Week, and the Worldwide Program Officer’s Conference. Moving to GHPOD II was a natural transition after completing her GxMBA and MPH while working in the Middle East as a Monitoring, Evaluation, Research, and Learning (MERL) consultant for SREO Consulting. The position was the perfect marriage of these skillsets combined with her background in adult learning and international development.

Over her career, Danielle has had the privilege of providing consulting services to a number of organizations in the public, private, and NGO sectors including, but not limited to, the United States Institute of Peace, USAID Africa Bureau, Legacy International, The American Dental Education Association, Genesis HealthCare, the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian, Tag-B Group, and Flash Travel.

What’s the coolest thing about your job?

Learning while facilitating learning! I feel so blessed to work with leading subject matter experts; helping them share their passion, communicate their life’s work, and share their knowledge to a wider audience. Learning from others inspires me to grow as a person and pushes me to constantly evolve as a facilitator. It is humbling and an honor to work in the learning space.

What was the last really great book you read? Why?

Return to Sender by Julia Alvarez. I rarely re-read a book, and this is one of them. I love how she is able to break down the complex issue of immigration for young readers by developing a beautiful story that humanizes the immigrant experience; the challenges of farming in the US, the networks of migrant workers, the impacts of deportation on people and businesses, and the very real impacts on the children of migrants and the friends that they make along the way.
