This month on EverTrue Studios we’re tipping our hats to women leaders in advancement. 

The RAISE Podcast:

Over 50 women leaders have joined us on the RAISE Podcast to-date. This month we celebrate both Women’s History and International Women’s Day, which makes it the perfect time to round up inspiring insights from these advancement game-changers.

“Alumni engagement starts when a student is admitted. “
– Erika Jordan,  Boston University

“My goal is to always have joyful donors.”

– Kimera Way, University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire

“Élan is a sense of urgency without emergency.”
– Cindi Roth, West Virginia University

“Philanthropy is about more than dollars. It’s about a love for humanity.”

– Amy Yancey, Boston College

“The best morale comes from believing that you are doing something that couldn’t be done without you.”

– Courtney Surls, American University

Featured this month on RAISE:

You won’t want to miss this month’s episode with Kimberly Russell, Vice President for University at Texas Woman’s University, a Hispanic-serving institution that is 90% women. Brent and Kimberly two dig into decades of insights about the two-year college spacs, the powerful Texas higher education system, and the similarities between advancement and enrollment management.

The Development Debrief podcast:

We also want to highlight an advancement podcast hosted by a woman leader in advancement. The Development Debrief Podcast, hosted by Kathryn Van Sickle, is a podcast for professionals, thought leaders, and donors in the field of fundraising.

Kathryn is a passionate fundraiser, community builder, and storyteller. She has been honing her fundraising skills for over a decade, working at a small college, a large research university, and now at an independent day school. 

Learn more about Kathryn and catch the latest episodes of The Development Debrief on EverTrue Studios.



The ambitious goal of achieving gender equity in the advancement profession requires an equally ambitious program. 

This month’s episode of TrueTalk features Dominique Matteson, AVP for Annual Giving at UConn Foundation. Dom breaks down what the Amplify Women and Gender Initiative is, how she got involved, and the ripple effect it’s creating across the industry.

The Mentorship Matters podcast:

This month, Kim Nyoni hosted Jennifer Mora, Senior Director of Major Gifts, Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, & Community Initiatives at the University of San Francisco, for a conversation about the power of inclusive mentorship. 

Jennifer talks about the impact of an expanded mentorship network that reaches deeper into our organization to connect with those folks who have different lived experiences, are first-generation professionals, or have historically been left out of the mentorship equation.
