Dana Saylor is the National Program Manager for the BlueGreen Alliance Foundation. She brings 20 years in non-profit coalition building and issue advocacy experience to BGAF and has worked in a variety of capacities in the environmental, labor and manufacturing communities. Dana currently works as a part of BGAF’s Building Clean project team where she advocates for the use of healthy, U.S. made energy-efficient building products and works with building owners, contractors, architects and other housing stakeholders to specify these products for their projects.
Prior to her current role, Dana was theProgram Manager for BGAF’s Clean Economy Manufacturing Center (CEMC) where she worked with wind, solar, advanced transportation and other clean economy manufacturers to help build CEMC’s educational workshop and webinar content, which focused on educating potential suppliers about clean economy markets and supply chains. She helped deliver this content to a national audience made up of manufacturers, economic development professionals, elected leaders and others interested in learning more about the growing clean economy and the economic opportunities it can provide.
Dana also spent three years working for the BlueGreen Alliance and Apollo Alliance in Michigan before the two organizations merged in 2011. During that time, she worked with the manufacturing community to support policies that could help grow Michigan’s overall clean energy economy and help make it easier for domestic suppliers to enter clean energy supply chains.
Dana holds a degree in Environmental Studies from the University of Colorado Boulder. A Michigan native, she grew up in a family manufacturing business that supplied parts for the auto industry and believes in the resurgence of U.S.manufacturing to lead in the clean economy.
