Becoming ATHENA Leadership Program

The ATHENA Leadership Model is the philosophy and framework for everything we do. The eight principles of leadership that it sets out are proven, specific and actionable. With immense gratitude, we believe that it will be through leaders, who intentionally embrace and develop their capacity to lead, that our next generation will learn to live by the following principles:

LIVING AUTHENTICALLY and LEARNING CONSTANTLY focus on how ATHENA leaders understand and develop themselves,

BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS and FOSTERING COLLABORATION focus on how ATHENA leaders embrace and encourage others,

ACTING COURAGEOUSLY and ADVOCATING FIERCELY align with how ATHENA leaders live out their convictions, and

GIVING BACK and CELEBRATING demonstrate how ATHENA leaders contribute to their communities and memorialize shared experiences.

This program is designed for all leaders; those who are developing as well as those leaders who want to mature their level of leadership and/or who are interested in growing their leadership team.

This 8-session program can be delivered virtually or in-person. It brings participants together in a community of collaboration and support to learn how to recognize and become familiar with the ATHENA leadership principles. This inclusive environment engages participants in deep conversations surrounding the ALM. Through this program each participant discovers their own truths and transforms elements of their entire lives both personally and professionally. Additionally, participants embrace one another’s unique strengths, while simultaneously enhancing their own authentic leadership skills and abilities. A unique potential of the virtual version of this program is the opportunity to connect, learn from, and build relationships with other women leaders from around the world.
