This series highlights some of the most promising frameworks, tools, and ideas that are being prototyped and refined across the ALIA network. As a contribution to the field of social innovation, we invited thought leaders and practitioners to share their practical wisdom with us—what works, what’s helpful, what they have learned, and the questions that are moving them forward.
There is no charge for the webinars. However, your donation towards the cost of organizing them will help us continue to offer them in the future. The donate button is located on the sidebar to the right.
