Child welfare veteran Amelia Franck Meyer describes the human need to belong and to be claimed. When we are disconnected from our tribe, and we feel as though we must make it on our own, it can have devastating life-long impacts. Listen to Amelia share the profound power of human connection.

Amelia Franck Meyer is the founder and CEO of Alia: Innovations for people and systems impacted by childhood trauma. Alia provides deep-dive systemic interventions, training, consultation, demonstration projects, and leadership coaching to transform child welfare. Amelia’s work has inspired a movement across the country and internationally to radically rebuild our child welfare system into one where all people - youth and their caregivers - can thrive. Amelia has received numerous awards and honors, most recently receiving prestigious fellowships from the Bush Foundation and Ashoka USA, and being honored with the Twin Cities Business Journal’s Eureka! Innovation Award.
