Diversity, inclusion, and equity apply to every aspect of Athena – from our members to our team to our coaches and our partners. We strive to be a community that supports women from all backgrounds, all abilities, all cultures. And, we’re dedicated to evaluating our efforts with transparency, and a desire to lead change from the front.
