Tools for transformation - Free webinar series

ALIA Webinar Series

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 have 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.
All webinars will take place at 4:00 pm GMT (noon Atlantic, 8:00 am Pacific) and will be recorded for playback.

There is no charge for the webinars. However, your donation towards the cost of organizing them will be greatly appreciated. The donate button is located on the sidebar to the right.
