YWCA Madison, Amplify Madison

Amplify Madison’s goal is to build skill, voice, and visibility for all people that identify as women, including trans women and in particular women of color working in the Madison region’s thriving local community organizations. This goal is pursued by supporting women in identifying professional development experiences that invite collaboration with other women and a share of the new knowledge and skills gained in the professional development experience(s) by hosting community engagement session(s). Teams can apply for up to $7500 to support their professional development journey and community engagement efforts. Due to the global health situation Amplify Madison will support participation in virtual experiences.
