The leadership team of the Win / Win Network is thrilled to announce that Dana Laurent will be heading up Win / Win as our new Executive Director.
Dana Laurent, current political director of Planned Parenthood Votes Northwest, will bring her passion for building infrastructure for the progressive movement to the Win/Win Network and its political counterpart, Win/Win Action, as their new Executive Director.
Win/Win is a large-scale civic engagement and political program bringing together socially responsible organizations to improve collaboration and communication in Washington State. Participants include organizations active in labor, environmental, reproductive health and social and economic justice issues.
In her role at PPVNW, Laurent served on the leadership team of Win / Win, helping the organization grow and develop since its inception in 2007. Sarah Jaynes, Win / Win Action board chair noted, “She is a skilled coalition builder, and brings deep expertise in civic engagement and political change. “
At PPVNW, Laurent led the development and implementation of a wide variety of civic engagement, policy and electoral campaigns in Washington, Alaska and Idaho. In 2009, the organization and Laurent played a leadership role in Approve Referendum 71 and No on 1033; and in 2010, PPVNW helped re-elect U.S. Senator Patty Murray by contacting 500,000 female voters around the state. PPVNW has had a great many legislative successes with Laurent as well, including this year’s budget passage with no additional cuts to family planning.
Dana Laurent will take over the Executive Director position from George Cheung, who left Win / Win to lead civic engagement programs at the Joyce Foundation in Chicago.
