Our team map

The oceans know no barriers, boundaries, or borders. Though we often distinguish them by name, they function as one integrated system, a single, interconnected global ocean.

Joi Danielson

Joi has devoted her career to solving the systemic challenges behind ocean decline, focusing on governance, funding, and technology. She first honed her problem-solving skills at McKinsey & Co., where she spent five years as a strategy consultant leading multicultural teams across diverse industries, from banking to energy. Ranked in the top 20% of McKinsey consultants, Joi emerged as a leader in the firm’s ocean work within the Sustainability and Resource Productivity Practice. Seeking to gain experience in international diplomacy, advocacy campaigns, and global policy-making, she joined the Ocean Conservancy. After an emotional moment in Indonesia, seeing dense plastic beaches three meters deep, she resolved to turn strategies into real change and joined Systemiq in Indonesia where she built a team and partnered with the government and private sector under a shared vision to build circular waste management systems for millions of people. These efforts have permanently halted over 60,000 tonnes of waste pollution, created hundreds of green jobs, influenced national governance policies, and attracted over $50 million in investment. Joi was elected as a Systemiq Partner for her impactful work.

Believing that in this decisive decade, every proven tool must be utilized for ocean conservation, Joi took time to understand how AI, robotics, and other emerging technologies could advance sustainability efforts and is currently working with her team to develop coastal digital twins that offer marine stewards real-time natural capital valuation and the unprecedented ability to virtually trial policies, conservation strategies, and blue economy initiatives. She is also creating a bespoke large language model that combines ocean and social science with a nation's policies and case history to help leaders achieve global ocean sustainability commitments. With 15 years of experience in strategic leadership roles at Systemiq, McKinsey & Co., and Ocean Conservancy, Joi excels in solving complex system challenges, leading global teams, and operationalizing theory for tangible conservation outcomes. She holds an MBA Cum Laude in emerging market strategy, a first-level CFA, a McKinsey Global Institute Technology Fellowship, and was a member of Peter Diamandis' A360 program. Joi's massive transformative purpose is to rebuild marine biodiversity and restore ocean ecosystem health and resilience.
