Working Nights Advisory Board

We are proud to have several distinguished professionals on our Advisory Board.  Each of our members has volunteered his or her time to assist Working Nights with content development, to provide access to new research and to be a sounding board for our new ideas.  The Advisory Board meets periodically to hear about our activities and to provide input into our products and capabilities.

All of our Advisory Board members have relevant knowledge in the field either by their own work experience as 24/7 workers or managers or by virtue of their research.  Meet our Advisory Board members by reading about them below.
