Field Advisor, Intimate Partner Violence Intervention, National Network for Safe Communities


Danneile Davis has spent the past decade working in the field of gender-based violence: as an activist, rape crisis advocate, philanthropist, and most recently as a Field Advisor for the Intimate Partner Violence Intervention (IPVI) and Reconciliation teams at the National Network for Safe Communities (NNSC), an action research center based at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. Having launched her career at Bain & Company’s Chicago Office as a management consultant, she has since taken those skills to NNSC where she provides hands-on strategic advising and support for sites’ data management to project managers, law enforcement executives, community-based organizations, and other leadership at NNSC partner cities across the country.

Ms. Davis’s specific portfolio focuses on strategies to reduce gender-based violence and strengthen police-community trust, particularly with survivors of intimate partner and sexual violence, and in communities further marginalized by race, ethnicity, and gender and sexual identity, expression, and orientation. A notable former project was the National Initiative for Building Community Trust and Justice, a multi-year, multi-site USDOJ-funded pilot project described by the Urban Institute as “the largest and most comprehensive effort ever undertaken to tackle police-community mistrust in the United States.”
