Nominees must be women who exemplify leadership, superior performance, commitment to community, and unselfish assistance to women and women’s issues.
Nashville ATHENA Nominations open each year in October. Organizations across the Greater Nashville area are encouraged to nominate one member for each category. Nominees are honored during a lunch and evening event held annually in March.
