Board of Directors

Worksafe Welcomes New Board Leadership

As you may know, Worksafe is supported by an amazing board of directors whose collective expertise spans law, labor, medicine, and public health. We held board elections this fall, and want to give a much deserved shout-out to our new crew of leaders:

Danielle Lucido, our new board chair, is Chief Counsel for the Engineers and Scientists of California Local 20, IFPTE. Dan brings big energy to Worksafe, along with years of experience with workers' compensation and occupational safety and health law.

Alor Calderon, our new vice chair, is the director of the Employee Rights Center in San Diego. He is an incredible leader and advocate with more than 15 years experience with labor, employment, and immigration issues in California.

Suzanne Teran, now our treasurer, is the Associate Director of the UC Berkeley Labor Occupational Health Program. Her work focuses on improving conditions for immigrant workers, Spanish-language training, effective health communication, and occupational health disparities.

Ryan Spillers, our new secretary, is an attorney with Gilbert & Sackman, a labor and employment firm located in Los Angeles. Worksafe benefits greatly from his legal expertise and passion for protecting workers' rights.

And of course we can't forget to acknowledge our outgoing officers: Chair Matthew DeCarolis and Treasurer Debra Chaplan. Thank you for your service!
