Equity and Inclusion Training: How To Identify and Host an Advisory Board

Presenter: Carolyn Hardin, All Rise Chief of Training and Research

Advisory boards can assist treatment courts in better understanding the experiences of participants and community members. They can also assist in the change process for effective engagement of minority communities. This session will help participants develop an effective advisory board that helps their treatment court team assess resources, risks, and consequences of program changes on their communities.

By the end of the training session, team members will understand how to:

  • Identify board members and facilitate the discussion.
  • Formulate the discussion questions and determine length of time to hold the advisory board.
  • Engage board members, analyze the discussion content, and obtain useful results.
