Employee Advocate Member, Hanford Concerns Council
Gold is a Senior Fellow at the Government Accountability Project, the oldest whistleblower advocacy organization in the United States, as well as Director of its education initiative, the American Whistleblower Tour, and Curriculum Project. She also serves as an employee advocate member of the Hanford Concerns Council, an alternative dispute resolution forum that resolves complex whistleblower concerns at the Hanford nuclear weapons site in Washington state. She has a JD from Seattle University School of Law, where she co-founded and directed its Center for Corporations Law and Society. During her Network Fellowship, Gold intends to study how the systemic response of institutions to vilify rather than support whistleblowers is itself a form of corruption that perpetuates other forms of corruption, and how instrumental mechanisms such as litigation, alternative dispute resolution, legislation, education, and journalism could be applied towards reforming management behavior that treats employees who raise serious concerns as problems rather than benefits.
