I make little agreements all the time in my dialogues, and you should too. They bring clarity, structure, and order to the conversation.

We Have a New Advisory Board!

We’ve purposefully put together an advisory board of people whose advice we not only respect, but who have a diverse set of experiences and areas of expertise. By having all of these people speaking into what we’re doing on an ongoing basis, we’re confident that we can direct Equal Rights Institute into becoming the best that it can be.

This advisory board is different than our Board of Directors, who meet quarterly to provide accountability, go over our financial reports, and make the decisions that only a Board of Directors can make. In contrast, the members of the Board of Advisors will meet with Josh one-on-one at least once a year to discuss our vision and offer their counsel.
