Athena International

I’m honored to be an advisor to Athena International.

Athena develops, supports and honors girls and women from the classroom to the board room, building a global pipeline of women leaders.

Athena’s eight principles of enlightened leadership drew me to the organization. The principles are:

  • Live authentically
  • Learn constantly
  • Advocate fiercely
  • Act courageously
  • Foster collaboration
  • Build relationships
  • Give back
  • Celebrate

Athena International was founded in 1982 by Martha Mayhood Mertz, and has been funded by the WK Kellogg Foundation.
