Elizabeth Métraux

Director, Engagement Strategy


With more than two decades of experience around the globe helping individuals and organizations disseminate their ideas, Liz Métraux is a tireless advocate for the use of story as a tool for radical change. A writer and anthropologist with roots in political organizing (most notably in the Middle East and former Soviet Union during the Iraq War and Arab Spring), she transitioned to healthcare after observing the powerful interplay among health, public policy, and community development. Moving from the frontlines of war to the frontlines of healthcare, she has led communications at the National Institutes of Health, spearheaded communications for USAID’s TB and infectious disease projects in the Central Asian Republics, and founded her own national thought leadership agency for women in healthcare.

Her north star (aside from her amazing daughter) is the insight of Maya Angelou: “There is no greater agony than bearing the untold story.”
