Finding talented women leaders that were open to sharing and supporting other women was one of my initial reasons for joining Athena. Having joined it, I have gained so much valuable insights, support, and access that, as a minority woman leader, otherwise would have been less forthcoming. Athena has been paving the way to embrace diversity as a foundation and it has been refreshing to experience and be a part of.
“Athena is an incredible opportunity to connect with powerful executives, provide insightful development salons and coaches that will invest in your development and offer unconditional support for your goals. Athena is a requirement for all female executives who want to take their leadership to the next level.”
“Athena has been a temendous resource for me in my capacity as NGC Chair and Member at several public company boards. The Athena team is proactive, accessible, and creative in sourcing strong diversity candidates for our consideration.”
“I started my journey with Athena nearly a year ago. This incredible community inspired me to shift my career in a meaningful way. The network and team of coaches that I was partnered with helped me to successfully make the leap from operator to investor — a move that I thought would take years to achieve.”
“Athena helped me get the critical basics in place, like my board bio. Athena was willing to do whatever the organization could do to help me pull the pieces together that I so urgently needed to go through the board interview process.”
“The people, process, and network at Athena is world-class. In my case, not only have I learned about important board topics and practices from their valuable webinars, but I was connected with a board opportunity that ended up being an excellent fit for me. I would never have discovered it otherwise. I admire Athena’s mission and am proud to be part of it.”
