The University of Maryland School of Social Work's The Institute for Innovation and Implementation is launching virtual Training Institutes Jan. 14. The plenary session features Amelia Franck Meyer, EdD, founder of Alia Innovations, who will give the talk "Building A New Way, Together." Franck Meyer will present mounting evidence for her vision of transformative change in child welfare and inspire us to work together to build a better way.

Franck Meyer is the founder and CEO of the national nonprofit Alia Innovations for people and systems impacted by childhood trauma. Alia is building a proof of concept that public child welfare agencies can serve as primary prevention agencies with the redesigned purpose of keeping children safe with their families. Franck Meyer and her team believe that all children need a sense of belonging that only their families can provide, and they work with leaders around the country to create this transformational change. Franck Meyer has received numerous awards for work in permanency, well-being, systems change, and innovation. She was designated as one of People Magazine’s “25 Women Changing the World” in 2018 and was named as a Bush Foundation Fellow and an Ashoka Fellow in 2015.
