Raising Visibility and Cultivating Connections for People of Color

About Amplify

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 USA.

  • Access: Exclusive access to forward thinking leaders and idea sharing conversations.
  • Building Connections: Establishing genuine networks that foster solid business relationships.
  • Leadership Development: Business/leadership coaching sessions specifically tailored for the cohort. 

The Program Includes:
