Headshot of Dani Friedland.

Dani Friedland is the new Director of Marketing Communications for The American Institute of Steel Construction.

She and her team are responsible for telling the story of America’s remarkable structural steel industry and the passionate people who work in the fields of architecture, engineering, steel fabrication, and construction. Although their expertise varies, these people have one thing in common: They will leave a legacy in steel.

AISC is a nonpartisan not-for-profit trade institute and industry association, founded in 1921, that strives to increase the market share of domestically fabricated structural steel.

Friedland joined AISC last year after nine years in B2B magazine publishing, where she held editorial, new media, and editorial tech roles. She briefly returned to Medill as an adjunct lecturer in 2018 and had an absolute blast working with the next generation of dedicated journalists.
