Thank you for your interest in Amplify! There will be new leadership challenges and opportunities in the year ahead of us. As we prepare to meet them, we hope Amplify serves as a catalyst for ideas, community, and change.
To date, Amplify has engaged more than 300 participants from 20 institutions across the U.S. and Canada. Participants report increases in their personal growth, confidence, leadership development, sense of belonging, and systems thinking.
Amplify is an eight-week learning experience that increases women’s capacity to address gender inequity at the personal, leadership, and organizational levels. The program is for women who work in educational advancement (colleges, universities, and K-12 schools), although exceptions will be made on a case-by-case basis. Every week, more than 100 women participate in large-group sessions followed by debrief meetings at their home institution.
When I joined Amplify, I felt unsure about my place within my institution. My eight weeks in Amplify completely changed how I interact with my professional self and my workplace. Not only did I meet women who are now friends, collaborators, and office allies, but I learned how much power I actually have within the organization.Caroline Stuart, Boston College
Amplify Leads invite a small group of 4-8 women to participate in the program. Participants are expected to attend the eight weekly Amplify sessions on Thursdays from Noon – 1:30 p.m. EST. Participants should secure the support of their supervisor prior to registering for the program. There is a $99 fee to participate in Amplify that is collected at the end of the program. (Please note: The fee is waived for BIPOC participants.)
Amplify sessions take place on Thursdays from Noon to 1:30 p.m. EST from March 30 – May 18, 2023. The sessions are highly interactive and designed to develop anti-oppression strategies and skills.
The program is a commitment to yourself and the other participants in your group. Please review the Amplify schedule to ensure you can participate in the sessions. Live make-up sessions are scheduled the following week on Tuesdays at 4 p.m. EST.
Please contact your institution’s Amplify Lead to receive the registration link. Registration is due by March 24, 2023. Fees will be collected at the end of the program.
Amplify launched in 2020 as a collaborative effort between CASE D1, Dartmouth College, and Boston University. Seed money from the CASE D1 Venture Fund supported Amplify in its first year until the program became self-sustaining through program fees.

Amplify was recognized by CASE at the District level with awards in Talent Management and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. In 2021, Amplify received the CASE Circle of Excellence Grand Gold Award as a “game-changing” talent management program.
