Tonya Allen: Changing the Odds for Detroit's Children | 187
Instead of helping children beat the odds, our work is about changing the odds for children.
Our featured guest today is Tonya Allen.
Tonya Allen, a serial “idea-preneur,” serves as The Skillman Foundation’s president & chief executive officer. Her two-decade-long career has centered on pursuing, executing and investing in ideas that improve her hometown of Detroit and increase opportunities for its people, especially children, who live in under-resourced communities. In her current role, Allen aligns the complexities of education reform, urban revitalization, and public policy to improve the well-being of Detroit’s and the nation’s children.
