The Catherine Hannah Behrend Fellowship provides two rising stars in visual arts management with executive-level mentors, invitations to high-level planning and strategy sessions, meetings with 92nd Street Y programming directors, and access to the wider 92Y staff and community. Fellows receive immersive instruction in visual arts management via monthly one-on-one meetings with seniors directors in various 92Y departments (marketing, development, innovation, education, budgeting, programming, etc.) These leaders provide behind-the-scenes perspectives of ongoing projects, challenges, and systems in their respective areas. Over the course of the year, Fellows also have the opportunity to work on a visual arts project meaningful to them.
Fellows receive additional exposure and training through the Women inPower Fellowship program, which provides senior female leaders across all major industries with professional development workshops and the networking and support they need to advance to the next stage of their careers.
