Amplify

Empowering Underrepresented And Minorities Future Leaders

The first step in achieving our industry’s full potential is sparking an industry-wide diversity and inclusion movement, and that spark starts at Money20/20. To ensure that this community serves as an agent of change for the wider fintech and financial services landscape, we created Amplify. Through this four-day, curated program, we'll raise visibility and cultivate connections for minorities & underrepresented groups in the industry.

Our history in numbers:

  • The first Amplify cohort started in 2021
  • Since inception, we have had 450+ candidates from around the world as part of our cohort
  • 60% of our cohort are people of colour or latinx
  • 1% of our cohort are people with disabilities

What's the impact of Amplify?

  • 85%+ have received a promotion/moved into a more senior role since Amplify
  • 97% felt more prepared for promotion after Amplify
  • 98% felt the Amplify network helped progress their career/opened new opportunities
  • 99% would recommend the programme to their peers

"Amplify has offered me entrance into a room that I may not otherwise have been able to enter. I got a chance to see women doing the work of running the financial world. I met people who were there to willingly encourage me, pour into me, and offer to be helpful with my startup. I learned about emerging trends in finance, and got confirmation that I was moving in the right direction. I made friends in the cohort who I can be in support of, and who will support me as we are going on our journeys to Amplify our missions and visions for our businesses."
