Sponsorship Opportunity: Alia Hosts “Ten of Ten for Kids” Event

Alia, a Minnesota-based nonprofit focused on transforming the child welfare system, is hosting a national event May 23-25, 2017 in Minneapolis called Ten of Ten for Kids. Alia is partnering with global design firm IDEO in facilitation of a rapid-cycle, human-centered team design process to draw insights from 100 carefully selected participants (ten groups of ten) with wide-ranging backgrounds and expertise – from child welfare innovators to foster care end users to Innovation Fellows – to focus on all aspects of child welfare, including prevention, the foster care system, and permanent placement.

The event will produce a short list of 1-3 “finalist” jurisdictions and/or organizations from around the country willing to prototype the approach(es) that emerge from the convening, as well as a list of pilot projects implementing clear and tangible changes that can be taken to the philanthropic community for implementation support.
