Heather Dahl

Executive Director
The Sovrin Foundation
Washington D.C. Metro Area
Dahl is widely-respected as a thought leader in technology and media having established best-in-class practices while working with leading tech firms and overseen the digital transformation in media organizations including as Chairman of the Board of Directors for the National Press Foundation, one of the most respected journalism education programs in the U.S.

While at Neustar, she also worked on cybersecurity solutions, and developed research projects on data privacy. This led to her founding of CynjaTech, a start-up initially focusing on educating children about cybsersecurity and internet behavior, but then growing into a platform where its proprietary distributed ledger technology could provide a cost effective way for SMEs to manage compliance and provide customers with enhanced privacy and security protection.

Dahl maintains a global network of influence cultivated during her early days as a reporter, senior producer and managing editor at PBS NewsHour, NPR, Fox News, and Public Radio International, among others. She was elected by her peers in broadcast journalism to serve as Chairman of the Congressional Correspondents Association. Dahl also has experience on Capitol Hill, having worked for two U.S. Senators from her home state of Oregon. She earned her M.B.A. from The Johns Hopkins University, an M.S. in Journalism from Columbia University and a B.A. in Political Science from Willamette University.
