Danielle Owens

Director, Early Career Programs

Born and raised in Southern California, Danielle is a graduate of Loyola Marymount University. She majored in African American Studies after feeling the lack of representation and connection to her history and culture during her primary education. Like so many others she desired to learn more about and connect to her culture and its significance in society. Through her struggles and experiences in both High School and College her passion for equity, inclusion and diverse representation in the education system and workplace began to take root.

Danielle comes to Code2040 after 15 years of working in faith-based organizations where she successfully built and led staff and volunteer teams. However, she has most enjoyed the privilege of hearing the stories of others and connecting them to plug in and volunteer within their skill and passion. She’s excited to use her experience and passion for connecting people and building teams at Code2040.

When not working, Danielle can be found lost in a book, enjoying a great glass of wine or on the hunt for the next best restaurant or dining experience. More than all that though, she can be “heard” far and wide cheering her daughters on to success both in life and sports!
