ATHENA International Women’s Leadership Day: On September 18, 2012 over 100 communities across ATHENA International’s global footprint will celebrate ATHENA International Women’s Leadership Day by hosting a new ATHENA event—a women’s leadership day event. In most cities it will be a lunch, though some communities may opt to host a leadership breakfast, dinner, etc.
Created by established women leaders wishing to extend a hand to the next generation of women leaders, ATHENA Women’s Leadership Day celebrates women helping women and provides a forum for women leaders to make meaningful connections with one another.
While each event will have its own unique characteristics across participating communities, the premise and core essence of this program will be the same everywhere: an established woman leader invites an emerging woman leader to attend the lunch as her guest. A brief speaker introduces ATHENA Leadership Model Principles and attendees share ideas on leadership at table discussions. Emerging women leaders come away from the event equipped with invaluable support, connections and community.
