The 2021 ATHENA Awards Luncheon planning is in the works! Check back soon for details about this year's event.
ATHENA Awards Luncheon
The ATHENA Awards Luncheon is held every other year opposite the ATHENA Women's Leadership Luncheon. During the event, three awards are presented to honor women leaders and those who support them. The awards are: - The ATHENA Leadership Award - presented to an established leader for their efforts in supporting and encouraging women leaders - ATHENA Young Professional - presented to a local female college student who demonstrates excellence and a commitment to the community while being a role model to her peers - Rebecca Cornish Scholarship - a scholarship presented to a local female high school student that supports the cost of a two-week sail aboard the Flagship Niagara to develop her leadership skills
Since the program’s inception in 1982, nearly 6,000 exemplary leaders in over 500 communities have received the prestigious ATHENA Leadership Award in the United States, Bermuda, Canada, China, Greece, India, Russia, United Arab Emirates and United Kingdom. By honoring exceptional leaders, the ATHENA Leadership Award program seeks to inspire others to achieve excellence in their professional and personal lives. To view a complete list of past ATHENA Leadership Award winners and the selection criteria, visit our awards page.
In addition to the leadership award, each of the four local universities is approached to nominate a female student for the ATHENA Young Professional Award. One nominee is selected from each university: Edinboro University of Pennsylvania, Gannon University, Mercyhurst University, and Penn State Erie, The Behrend College. Each of the finalists is recognized at the luncheon event and one winner is announced.
