Athena Center for Leadership Studies
Launched in 2009 as a special initiative of Barnard President Debora Spar, the Athena Center uses a wide-range of strategies to advance women as leaders in the public and private spheres and in the political and civic life of communities around the Globe. Kathryn Kolbert, the Constance Hess Williams Director, joined as its founding director in fall 2009. Since then, the center has provided education, research, professional development and public education programs both in New York and internationally.
Women and Hollywood
Women and Hollywood educates, advocates, and agitates for gender parity across the entertainment industry. In ten years, it has grown to be one of the most respected sites focused on women’s issues and popular culture, and its founder, Melissa Silverstein, has become a well-respected leader on the subject.

Barnard provides a singular educational experience, as a world-renowned college focused on excellence across the arts and sciences, with all the academic resources of Columbia University and the City of New York as an extended classroom. Founded in 1889, Barnard was one of the few colleges in the nation where women could receive the same rigorous and challenging education available to men. Today, Barnard is one of the most selective academic institutions in the country and remains devoted to empowering extraordinary women to become even more exceptional.
