As the Nashville ATHENA Award Program celebrates its 30th year, Athena’s spirit lives on in those women who use their vision and persistence daily to excel, while reaching out to open doors and blaze new trails for others to follow. Women from across Nashville and Middle Tennessee were nominated in October 2019 for special recognition at the ATHENA Awards; however, only one from each category will join past recipients as Nashville’s 2020 ATHENA Award recipient and ATHENA Young Professional Leadership Award recipient.

At the Awards, two recognitions will be presented – the traditional ATHENA Award, which celebrates women who demonstrate excellence, creativity and initiative in their profession, contribute to their community and mentor other women; and the ATHENA Young Professional Leadership Award, which highlights emerging women leaders between the ages of 25-40 who demonstrate excellence in their profession and improve the quality of life for others in the community while serving as role models for other young women both personally and professionally.

We are excited to announce this year’s nominees and we hope you will join us on March 24th to celebrate and honor these exceptional leaders.
