The ATHENA Awards Program and ATHENA Young Professional Award are founded on the ATHENA Leadership Model® from ATHENA International, which identifies eight distinct attributes, called the ATHENA Tenets, that are reflective of women’s contributions to leadership: Authentic Self, Relationships, Giving Back, Collaboration, Courageous Acts, Learning, Fierce Advocacy, Celebration and Joy.

Over 500 attended the 27th annual ATHENA Awards Celebration on September 15, 2016 for a luncheon steeped in the ATHENA tenets—from Celebration & Joy to Learning, from Authentic Self to Fierce Advocacy. The event included two award presentations and the granting of $4,250 total scholarships to five women over 30 pursuing degrees. Read a 2016 recap with event photos here.
