What is Women inPower?

Women inPower is a dynamic cross-sector fellowship program designed to help high-potential women advance the top levels of leadership in their fields.  This one-of-a-kind program provides a select group of female leaders in New York City with executive mentorship, educational training and workshops, and membership in an active community of female leaders.

The Fellowship is 12 months long–from January through December. It includes one-on-one and peer mentorship, CEO workshops, networking events, as well as educational seminars and activities that address key topics women face when taking the next step in their career.  Women inPower is a unique opportunity for women across sectors and industries to come together to create new pathways to career success.

THE FACTS

  • Only 4.2% of Fortune 500 CEOs are women
  • Only 16% of corporate board members are women
  • The pay gap has not budged for a decade.  Since 2002, women have made an average of just 77 cents on the dollar when compared to male salaries.
  • There are currently very few fellowships that focus on the mid-career drop-off point, and fewer programs that pool talent and fellows from across sectors and industries.

The facts have remained the same for over a decade.

NOW is the time for change.

By work with a variety of strategic partners and key voices, 92Y will convene the brightest minds and build a community of Fellows and Mentors who will address these issues head on.
