Athena offers live and on-demand learning, coaching, networking, and access to career opportunities for the world’s top women leaders. Have a specific goal such as a board seat, promotion, or career transition? Accelerators provide targeted, one-on-one support to help you get there.
Athena activates the connections, knowledge, and opportunities executive leaders need to break through the barriers that line the “last mile” of their career – to the C-suite, boardroom, or the world of entrepreneurship and investing.
Today’s women have a whole new take on retirement, centered around giving back and board service. To further understand women and their approach to vocational freedom — when she has the time, treasure, and talent to pursue any passion or interest she desires — Athena surveyed our community of women executives.
81% of survey respondents were between ages 45 & 65 – with 70% reporting that they’ve achieved vocational freedom or are within five years of it. Yet, more than half of respondents report that they still work full-time.
60% of women look for help from organizations like Athena Alliance to make the transition to vocational freedom. “Traditional means of ‘retirement’ support, such as books or groups are not necessarily the right fit for these modern, ambitious women,” Liz Tinkham, host of Athena’s Third Act podcast (which inspired the infographic), observed.
90% of women are interested in for-profit or non-profit board service.
Board service took center stage, with 90% of women saying they are interested in non-profit and for-profit board service.
