Joining our team in March 2019, Cat Almonte serves as The Broad Room’s first full time paid staff! Born in the Dominican Republic and raised in New York, she comes to us from The Brooklyn Museum where she’s been working at the intersection of art and activism. Cat’s made it her mission to create space for underserved communities to feel welcome and seen at the Museum by breaking down barriers to access. Before entering the art world, she worked for the City of New York, learning the (often male dominated) ins and outs of the NYC political scene and becoming the Mayor’s right hand at City Hall and on citywide campaigns. Cat took numbers, names, and raised millions of dollars. And along the way, she trained our Broad Room members on “How to Get That Money.” Now, Cat’s taking these tools to train up an all female activist army.
