Cable continues to advocate for women to advance in their careers and to serve in high-level capacities in our community. One of the programs — Women on Corporate Boards — provides training for women to develop top-level skills needed to serve on corporate boards. Cable also holds an annual Board Walk of Fame breakfast to recognize those companies as champions of women leaders. Through our partnership of Lipscomb University’s Nelson & Sue Andrews Institute for Civic Leadership, Cable offers The Executive Leadership Academy.
Advocacy extends into the greater community through such programs as ATHENA. From its beginning, the Nashville ATHENA Award Program has been and continues to be a unique community-supported program, organized and sponsored through the collaborative efforts of local women’s organizations in partnership with local businesses and individual sponsors, unlike other cities which rely upon their local Chamber of Commerce.
