Policy Leadership - Advisory Group

We are grateful to be working with a diverse and inspiring group of advisors to envision both a program and a sector that supports and elevates new and essential voices and perspectives into digital policy discussions and outcomes.

The advisory role consists of a combination of ad-hoc conversations, providing feedback on program plans, synchronous meetings, and serving as amplifiers and ambassadors where appropriate. We are deeply grateful for their knowledge, expertise, and experience.

Gunner and the Aspiration team have been an incredible inspiration and resource for us at OpenNews. Our organization would not be the same without the open approach that Aspiration and Gunner model so well, and their ongoing coaching and support as our programs evolve. Thanks!
