Former Consortium Member Continues Commitment to Diversity at Google, UVA Darden
By Jay Hodgkins
University of Virginia Darden School of Business alumna Daniele Wilson (MBA ’11) manages the Google team that works with nonprofits to help them improve their online strategy and presence, and micro-target their audience. She also leads Google’s legislative and policy advocacy efforts to help nonprofits thrive in an increasingly digital world.
Wilson recently shared more about her work since graduating, including at Google, on Darden’s Alumni Spotlight. In particular, the former Consortium member discussed her ongoing commitment to fostering diversity and inclusion.
The Consortium asks its members to commit to fostering corporate diversity and inclusion after graduation. She served on Darden’s admissions committee as a student at the School. At J&J, she led all diversity recruiting for MBAs in marketing roles. And at Google, she leads her business sector’s diversity, equity and inclusion committee’s hiring efforts.
She has also poured that passion into serving on the Darden Dean’s Diversity Advisory Council since 2015. In addition to helping Darden identify and recruit more diverse faculty and students, the council serves as a “sounding board” for minority students to raise concerns and issues.
“My experience at Darden was great. I think the School is special, and that we develop some of the best-in-class business folk,” Wilson says. “I just want to do everything I can do to help make sure that more diverse people are exposed to this opportunity to go to Darden and have that great experience.”
