About this event

There are nuances to being a woman in leadership and this engaging and fun 5-part salon series explores the strategies participants can employ to enhance and advance their careers. We cover Dr. Hynes' 3S model of career advancement which includes Professional Savvy, Individual Support, and Strategic Planning. In each session we'll delve deep into one of the 3 S's, concluding with an intended next step for putting the acquired knowledge into practice. Participants will get to learn best practices from one another as well as be each others' thought partners and sounding boards for implementing their plans.

Session 2 – Savvy This segment helps participants learn how to craft a personal brand statement, exude executive presence, identify their passion and career vision, and pinpoint obstacles impeding their progress.

Each live session goes for one hour, no preparation is needed, just show up as you are. We look forward to seeing you there!

Learning Circles

A Learning Circle is 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.
