About this event

Learning Circles

Learning Circles are an opportunity to connect with a small group of other Athena members in a focused yet casual setting, creating accountability around targeted learning to assist you in achieving your goals. Over the course of 6 sessions, club members will meet every 2 weeks to participate in an organic, peer-led discussion of the session's "chapters" consisting of 1-2 Athena salons which are to be reviewed on your own prior to the group session. When joining, members are committing to completing all 6 sessions.

ESGT Megatrends 22-23

As we move from two plus Pandemic years, an unexpected brutal war in Europe and new economic, humanitarian and environmental challenges, to years of resilience building and (hopefully) recovery, explore the five ESGT megatrends of our turbulent times. Andrea Bonime-Blanc (Athena member, author, board member and ESGT strategist) has developed this body of work for for-profit, nonprofit and public sector leaders to factor into their strategic planning and tactical implementation, including the latest ESG trends, preparing for the tech battlefront, and navigating geopolitical tectonic shifts that affect day-to-day business.
