PALM DESERT, CA - July 16, 2018 - Hobsons, the education technology leader and company behind Naviance, will hold the third Naviance Advisory Board meeting today at Hobsons Summer Institute 2018 in Palm Desert, California. The Advisory Board will meet to provide strategic consultation on Naviance and the market that it serves.
The mission of the Naviance Advisory Board is to inform and influence decisions related to the current and future state of Naviance. Formed in February 2018, the Advisory Board is made up of twelve K-12 education leaders from across the country. Each of the members assist Hobsons by providing insight on the current market and landscape of the population served by Naviance, as well as providing feedback on the product strategy, product roadmap and customer experience.
“We value the experience and perspective of educators across the country,” said Monica Morrell, General Manager of Naviance. “Our clients are doing exceptional work in support of student success and it is important their voice is heard as we continue to evolve our product and services offerings. We established the Naviance Advisory Board as a forum for gathering feedback on the needs and challenges facing K-12 schools and districts. Their view on what will help them help their students is an important part of our product discovery and market validation process.”
“Having the opportunity to serve on the Naviance Advisory Board allows me to make a difference and have the ability to unify efforts for change. It’s about finding ways to provide our kids opportunities to succeed in an ever-changing world.” said Kat Pastor, Counselor at Flagstaff High School. “Naviance innovation closes the equity and access gap, and gives school counselors a platform to assist their students turn dreams into reality.”
The Board will meet today to participate in a discussion about the product roadmap, a workshop on market needs, and a review of the College, Career and Life Readiness Framework. The new framework will officially launch at Hobsons Summer Institute 2018 on July 17.
