Grounded in research, the ATHENA Leadership Model is based on eight core principles that inspire women to reach their potential. The curriculum provides definitions of each of the principles, examples for gaining a deeper understanding, and exercises so students can apply what is learned. The principles include: authenticity and lifelong learning, courage and fierce advocacy, collaboration and relationship-building, giving back to and celebrating with those around us.
